Wine maker notes: The 2019 vintage saw warm and humid conditions throughout the summer resulting in the need for extra care and investment measures in the vineyard. Harvest was later than usual, but the fruit was healthy, flavourful and ripe. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested throughout October according to optimal ripeness, with a portion (11%) being set aside to dry for 64 days in the Appassimento method. The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel.
Grape Variety/Blend: Sauvignon Blanc
Style: 11% Appassimento
Tasting Note: With aromas of gooseberries, grapefruit, lemongrass, fresh cut grass and boxwood. The palate has vibrant, tropical flavours of mandarin orange, grapefruit and lemon-lime, with subtle herbaceous complexity and a long, fresh, clean finish. This wine is meant to be enjoyed young and fresh! Drink now, nicely chilled, through to 2022.
Food Pairing: Enjoy this wine with dishes such as lemongrass chicken, shrimp pad thai, savoury salads such as creamy Caesar, fresh chickpea or pesto pasta, berry salads with goat cheese, apricot ricotta tart, lemon curd, and savoury cheesecakes with fresh fruit.
