Bright straw with a green tinge
Pungent aromas of gooseberry, cut grass and kiwi fruit with barrel ferment notes.
Abundant guava, asparagus leading to a mineral edge. Oak adding texture to the mid palate. Crunchy acidity adding precision, focus and length.
Sauvignon Blanc was crushed and run to barrel and inoculated with yeast, fermentation then took place over 10 days. The yeast lees were stirred regularly over the next 8 months while maturing in French oak barriques (15% new), prior to bottling in December 2020.
Enjoy now, or cellar for the next 4 years, to gain mid palate weight and complexity.
REVIEWS & RATINGS
91 points, Jeni Port - Halliday Wine Companion 2022 - 'Like sucking on a juicy grape, this 1yo is super-fresh and zesty. The grape's usual herbaceous exuberance is toned down and in its place are green mango skin, lime, lemon rind and green apple. It's a well-composed, thoughtful expression. Crunchy acidity hits the spot'.
