The Donnelly’s Block is an area of the property that is the furthest away from the sea and subsequently represents the highest point – 160 meters above sea level. It is on the North facing slopes so is also the most sheltered area of the vineyard, avoiding the spring southerlies which slow down early seasonal growth. It consistently produces the most distinctive, aromatic Sauvignon Blanc fruit on the estate.

Winery Tasting Notes
Selected from the two best Sauvignon Blanc parcels on Donnelly's Block this aromatic wine shows lifted flavours of blackcurrant with underlying notes of wet stone and thyme.
The palate is elegant yet full with sufficient weight and texture, which is balanced by the flinty minerality typical of the Seaview Vineyard.
This wine is a fantastic match with foods such as cheese salad, poultry dishes and a wide range of seafood dishes including freshly shucked natural oysters, prawns, green lip mussels and creamy scallops.
