Sauvignon Blanc

"This is an elegant and tightly bound, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit and gooseberry flavours and a minerally finish". Raymond Chan

Colour
Pale yellow.
Nose
A deeply aromatic wine with notes of passionfruit, lemongrass and fresh herbs; with just a perfect hint of flintiness.
Palate
A wonderfully lively palate with soft grapefruit style acidity. The mid palate is juicy with tropical and herbaceous notes mingling perfectly together. A zesty mouth-watering finish.
Food Match
Fresh pasta with salmon and broad beans.

Comments
The most important thing in making vibrant Sauvignon Blanc is treating the grapes, juice and wine with respect; thereby protecting the volatile flavours from oxidation and corruption. This is done each step of the way starting with harvesting in the snall hours to ensure the grapes are cold when they reach the winery. Each vineyard batch is kept separate and gently pressed and cold settled. The juice is then racked and inoculated with selected yeast. A cool, closely monitored fermentation follows and once the wine has reached perfect balance it's chilled and racked off yeast lees. The wines are then allowed to relax in tank before blending, fining and filtering.
