2023 Sauvignon Blanc


Vintage: 2023 – an excellent white wine vintage, typified by good yields and a dry, mild ripening period resulting in flavoursome, aromatic wines.

Varietals: 91% Sauvignon Blanc; 6% Chardonnay; 3% Semillon.

Appearance: Pale straw with green tints.

Aroma:  Aromas of nashi pear, guava, lemon barley and jasmine combine with complexing savoury notes of nettle and cashew nut.

Palate:  Textured and mouth-filling – fleshy fruits of pear, melon and guava fill the mid-palate before intertwining with hints of toasted nuts and herbs. A soft, talc-like mineral acid focuses the finish around notes of lemon leaf and passionfruit.

Oak Detail:  30% of the blend spent 4 months (including ferment) in a combination of new (10%) and seasoned French oak barriques, whilst the balance of the blend was fermented cool in stainless steel to retain freshness of aromatics.

Cellaring:  Ready for immediate drinking and will continue to drink well over the next 3-4 years.

Food Pairing:  Grilled white fish with mango salsa.

Alcohol Volume: 12.8%
Acidity:  pH 3.22; TA 6.8g/L
