The 2014 growing season was characterised by almost perfect conditions for flowering and fruit set, followed by long warm summer ripening days in the season. As a result of well balanced vines, the small bunches and berries have contributed to this Sauvignon Blanc achieving full flavour ripeness with soft expressive tropical aromatics and only subtle underlying herbaceous tones distinctive of the variety grown in a cool climate.

Punchy with texture and flavour. Goes all right. Passionfruit and cut grass with sweet citrus to close. Most pleasant. CM - Australian Wine Companion, Rating 90, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale golden straw with a tinge of lime.
A lifted floral bouquet of freshly picked lilies, hints of oyster shells, the perfume is mineralized, soft and elegant, talc like; with underlying tones of fresh fruits such as gooseberry, passion fruit, and vanilla cream, finishing with a hint of mango and the sweet grassy aroma of dill.
Medium bodied, well-balanced and soft structured palate, the flavours are long and fine, with expressive lush tropical fruits, mango, paw paw, banana passion fruit and sweet baby asparagus, all nicely balanced by savoury notes and a fresh crisp cleansing acid spine, which provides tightness to the finish, whilst the fruit remains delicate and lingering.
A Sauvignon Blanc made for your enjoyment and to drink on its own, yet versatile enough to match with a wide array of different appetizers & cuisine; grilled pork loin, chicken salad, fried goats cheese salad with cranberries, Mexican dishes, spring vegetable and seafood stir-frys, pastas, curries, salsas; pan-seared scallops, risotto of lobster with sea vegetables, shellfish, freshly shucked oysters, asparagus with prosciutto and shaved parmesan.
