Bright, very pale straw-green colour, near colourless on the edge. The nose is very fresh with intense, vibrantly fragrant aromas of ripe passionfruit with bright lime and citrus notes, gooseberries, lifted florals and subtle minerally elements. This is delicately detailed and exudes vitality. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, bright and elegantly concentrated flavours of sweet tropical fruits and gooseberries are entwined with passionfruit and mineral notes. The mouthfeel is refreshing and refined, with very fine textures and a crisp, poised palate line. Aromatic herb and floral elements unfold and carry through to a lively, lifted, luscious and long lingering finish. This is a refined, aromatically rich Sauvignon Blanc with fine textures and vitality. Serve with seafood, salads and vegetables over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Clouston’, ‘Palliser’’, ‘East Base’ and ‘Collins’ vineyards fermented, 12% by indigenous yeasts, in stainless-steel to 13.1% alc. and 4.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees with batonnage.
Instantly likable, the bouquet shows inviting aromas of passionfruit, peach, citrus and sweet basil. It is succulent and fruit expressive on the palate, and delivers excellent intensity and vibrancy, backed by refreshing acidity. Very long on the finish with appealing juicy flavours. At its best: now to 2018.
Light, fresh sauvignon blanc with crisp nectarine, passionfruit and red capsicum flavours. Refreshingly dry, with appealing purity and an ethereal texture.
Very pale yellow. Sweet nectarine and sexy spices on the nose, lifted by a subtle floral topnote. Supple, easygoing and sweet but with a sappy freshness to the generous flavors of citrus fruits and spices. Finishes dusty and classically dry, with some very ripe notes.
