Tropical fruits, guava and passionfruit are enhanced by nectarine, fresh lime and complex aromas of gunsmoke. A hint of nuttiness from lees stirring making it clear this is no ordinary Sauvignon.
Mouthwatering flavours of citrus, stone fruit and guava work in harmony with the fresh, natural acidity. Supple texture and savoury complexity from barrel fermentation enhance a powerful and salivating wine that leaves you wanting another glass.
Ripening Conditions couldn’t have been better, low rainfall and a warm summer provided fast ripening and a small picking window to ensure the perfect citrus based flavour profile we are chasing in all white varieties. With some consecutive hot days acids definitely dropped and flavours built quickly toward mid March. Punchy, ripe, exotic fruit with crushed citrus in Sauvignon and Semillon.
Picked from our Karridale and Luminosa River vineyards, 60% of the individual batches were pressed to tank and the remainder was specifically selected for barrel fermentation and battonage. A careful mix of technique gives this wine a perfect balance of explosive varietal perfume, complex flavours, palate texture and refreshing natural acidity.
