100% Sauvignon Blanc almost exclusively from our Whitehills vineyard located in the Tamar Valley. The 2012 vintage was excellent across the board and especially for white varietals. There was some late season rainfall that did not affect the Sauvignon Blanc as it was already safely tucked away in the winery. The juice was run off skins immediately after pressing and then cold settled to remove solids. Fermented under strict temperature control and using protective handling techniques to maximise retention of fruit flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes
The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant and bright with a pale green straw hue.
The nose shows tropical fruits, white peach, overtones of passionfruit and splashes of grassy/ herbaceous characters.
On the palate there is more complexity than the run-of-the-mill Sauvignon Blanc with layers of passionfruit, kiwifruit and dried herbs. The wine is well balanced, fresh and zesty. It has a racy acidity with a soft finish.
The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc has the weight of flavour and complexity to make it a versatile food wine. Perfect accompaniment to lighter seafood dishes like oysters and calamari. Also perfect with steamed asparagus drizzled in olive oil and crumbled with fresh chevre and crispy pancetta.
