Winemaker's Notes

Deliciously ripe, tropical Sauvignon Blanc, with interestingly intense citrus and floral notes. These are balanced by the herbal notes that are typical of Sauvignon, but which can dominate 'greener' styles. Its best feature is probably the palate, which exhibits true balance between the fruit described above, and the 'structure' of the wine: principally acid and alcohol. An even, balanced and well-structured Sauvignon Blanc, with persistent fruit, we are delighted with the results of this vintage.
