About the Vineyard
For this wine, we source Sauvignon Blanc grapes from multiple regions across South Australia, including Adelaide Hills, Wrattonbully and Barossa. Sites vary considerably, adding their own dimension to the overall flavor profile.
Grapes arrived during the cool of the night, they were gently crushed into tank and given 12 hours skin maceration prior to draining and pressing. Wild yeasts then initiated and completed fermentation. Once complete, the wine was left on its lees and given regular bâttonage to build complexity until blending.
Very pale straw with green hues. This Sauvignon Blanc displays lively aromas of freshly cut grass, grapefruit, Granny Smith apples and white blossom with nuances of fresh herbs and candied lemon rind. The palate is vibrant and bursting with life and zest. There is an increased depth and generosity of fruit from the wild ferment and bâttonage. Flavors of lemon drop and passion fruit butter abound, with zesty acidity. This is an easy drinking and enjoyable wine that shows all the hallmarks of fruit driven Australian Sauvignon Blanc; line and length with a generosity of flavor.
Enjoy with a citrus dressed BBQ calamari salad or crispy lemon tofu.
