The core contribution in this cuvee comes from Shaw + Smith's own estate vineyards at Balhannah and Lenswood. That is complemented by fruit from a small number of highly valued growers.
After manual harvest, the Sauvignon Blanc fruit goes through a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. A short maturation on the lees adds texture and early bottling ensures freshness.
Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc is bright and aromatic with notes of grapefruit, nashi pear and nettles. On the palate there is intense flavour with fresh, limey fruit, mouthwatering acidity and remarkable purity.
Match this wine with barbecued prawns topped with avocado pico de gallo.
