Clear, pale straw with green hues.
Fresh, vibrant aromas of blackcurrant leaf, lime zest and passion fruit with a hint of fresh herbs. Intense and lifted.
The aromas are fully displayed on the palate along with freshly-peeled citrus. The crisp acidity is balanced with a softness and weight on the mid-palate that lingers along the tongue accompanied by a grapefruit zestiness.

The 2018 growing season offered good rainfall and long and sunny autumn providing ideal conditions for fruit flavours to develop slowly but fully.
At harvest the Sauvignon Blanc grapes showed wonderfully intense varietal expression and natural acidity. The fruit form the varying vineyard parcels were fermented separately with carefully selected yeasts to highlight the aromatic nature of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit. Further maturation on yeast lees for three months prior to bottling has created pleasing palate weight and texture.
