Tasting notes

Vintage outlook

Our rare example of a cool climate Sauvignon Blanc is bright and racy. Full of flavors of zesty citrus, guava and passionfruit with a chalky minerality and a hint of salinity. This wine highlights all the benefits of our cool climate estate vineyard, ideal for growing this vibrant varietal. We like to think of this wine as the perfect combination of Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand and Sancerre – bursting with fruit flavors and balanced with the perfect amount of racy acidity

The Art of Making Our Wine

Throughout the millenia for which winemaking has existed, the humble grape has always been the star of the show. Its journey from a simple fruit to a complex, beautiful wine, is tastfully shepherded by the winemaker, asserting themself into the natural process while being mindful not to overly interfere with the wonder that is fermentation.
