vintage

A very distinct 2017 vintage. The dry, warm spring and summer meant it was tracking early but a tropical rain event in January saw 50–70mm fall across the region which pushed back harvest dates slightly. Of our main white varieties, Sauvignon Blanc stands out, with great aromatics, perfume and length of flavour. 

winemaking

Only the first free run juice from the Semillon variety is used, with its lovely purity and fruity boldness combined with the highest level of natural grape acidity. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were gently pressed to extract the intense flavours and aromas within the Sauvignon grape skins. During fermentation, cool temperatures were used to encourage aroma production and overall varietal expression. A parcel of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc went direct to barrel and was fermented in new and old French oak puncheons to impart spice, texture and style to the end wine. On the completion of fermentation, the wine was chilled and clarified to ensure primary fruit freshness is at the forefront of the style.
