Description

Produced with fruit from our own vineyard, and complimented by fruit from selected vineyards from the immediate area. We harness the natural ripe, tropical, passion fruit and fresh gooseberry that the region has to offer with minimal winemaking interference, to produce a vibrant and delicious wine.

Here are some tasting notes from vintage 2017

Fresh and herbaceous aromas on the nose are chased by lifted sweet citrus notes. Ripe, tropical summer fruits spill onto the palate, along with tangy pineapple and lime flavours. Silky in texture and with a lip-smacking finish, this wine is one to be enjoyed all summer long.

“Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, very light edged.  The nose is very elegant in proportion with fresh aromas of passionfruit with soft notes of fresh herbs, snow peas and cut grass.  Dry to taste, the palate has a vibrant and zesty heart of passionfruit, cut grass and fresh herb flavours.  The mouthfeel is refreshing and bright with fresh acidity and a core that flows along a fine-textured line.  This has good linearity, and the wine carries to a lingering finish of passionfruit, herbs and grass.  This is a lively and bright passionfruit, herb and cut-grass flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with fine textures and good linearity.  Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years.  Fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 4 g/L RS.” **** stars
