Reviews

“Vegetarian and vegan friendly Sauvignon Blanc in a light, fresh and fruity style. Citrus, lime, gooseberry and fresh herb flavours, with a bone-dry finish and slightly peppery texture. “
85/100 Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, August 2018

“Attractively fruited and fragrant, the bouquet shows nectarine, feijoa, green apple and lemon peel characters. The palate is immediate and bright, displaying juicy fruit flavours and refreshing acidity, leading to a lingering tasty finish. Expressive, flavoursome and very likable. At its best: now to 2020.”
90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2018

Winemaking notes

The fruit for this wine was harvested on four different dates in April 2017- between the 10th and the 26th. Reductive handling of the juice and early morning harvests while the grapes were cool helped retain maximum fruit flavours. The clear, bright juice was cool fermented 100% in stainless steel with selected yeast strains to promote fruit aromas and flavours. Some post ferment lees contact was allowed to encourage flavour integration and increase mouth feel and complexity.
The blended wine was gently fined with an organic approved yeast product prior to bottling in February 2018.
