Expert Reviews

"Pale lemon juice colour. Vibrant on the nose, with grassy notes dominating. Light bodied palate, with some green melon flavour, along with a touch of tomato plant. Fresh and clean and quite restrained - not a fruit salad style, but a reasonably early picked, crisp style, and pleasingly dry on the finish."David Le Mire, WBM (01/Sep/2010)

Winemaking Notes

Sauvignon Blanc from the cool region of Pemberton were harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed, de-stemmed, must chilled and de-juiced. The juice was allowed to cold settle for 36 hours and subsequently racked off, upon which an aromatic yeast was introduced for fermentation. The ferment was halted early to aid in preserving the natural grape sugars and to add body and enhanced fruit character to the finished wine.
