Overview

This wine is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes. 50% of the fruit was fermented in French oak barriques (225L barrels), and then left on its lees for a further three months. The remaining 50% was fermented in stainless steel vats and then blended with the barrel aged wine pre-bottling.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The wine is a pale straw colour

Aroma

The wine has a fragrance reminiscent of passionfruit and pineapple.

Palate

The first thing one notices on the palate is the sweet fruit and a fullness on the mid-palate. This is where the barrel and lees aging are starting to do their thing. They impart a creamy texture and a softening of the hard acids one associates with this variety giving it length and a silky texture. So the weight of the wine is more akin to Chardonnay than the NZ style Sauvys, and is greatly suited as an accompaniment to food.

Food Matching

Try it with Asian foods or even a mild beef curry.
