The heart and soul of the Pond Series, 'Black Thursday' Sauvignon Blanc has consistently delivered a wine of outstanding value and quality. It derives its name from the Black Thursday bushfire in 1991 when the vineyard saved our local township.
Bursting palate of tropical paw paw, guava and melon balanced by notes of passionfruit, hints of cucumber and split pea. The rounded tropical fruit palate is supported by a tight citrus acidity that gives a zesty, crisp finish. Enjoy while young!

Quartz-white; aromas of kiwi fruit and herb lead into a well-balanced palate that brings more fruit into play, with a subtle tropical gloss to the flavour profile and finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
Very pale green straw with luminous hints of green. Brilliant clarity.
Aromatic and lively, fresh tropical fruits of passionfruit, freshly cut honey dew melon, mango and honeysuckle with hints of fresh gooseberry and cucumber.
Lush fruit driven palate which is lively and intense, exhibiting fresh tropical fruits with the crispness of freshly chilled apple and cucumber. Well balanced acidity balances the fruit sweetness and the palate ends with a slightly textural finish with great length and flavour persistence.
A great match for fresh seafood – salt and pepper squid, oysters, scallops and white fleshed fish.
