Refreshing, balanced acidity rounds out this much-loved style of Sauvignon Blanc.

cellaring

Peak drinking within three years of vintage. 

Technical

vintage 

A prolonged cool and wet growing season meant the vines were lush and healthy heading into ripening. This resulted in later harvest dates, accentuated by the cool and wet ripening months; conditions not experienced in Western Australia for more than ten years. These conditions, coupled with the absence of heat events, produced highly aromatic reds with pristine natural acidity.

winemaking

The grapes were harvested between midnight and sunrise which ensured the fruit reached the winery as cool as possible. Following a light pressing, the juice was then fermented at cool temperatures to encourage vibrant aromas, texture and overall varietal character. On completion of fermentation, the batches were chilled, blended and lightly fined before being stabilised and filtered only once to produce a bottle ready wine. This minimal handling had helped retain the attractive primary fruit flavours and aromas.
