Delightful lime skin and feijoa aromas lead to a lighter-style palate showing flint and lime. The delicacy and balance allow a ripe citrus and lime focus. 

Reviews: It is beautifully fragrant on the nose showing grapefruit, nectarine, lemon/lime peel and jasmine characters. The palate is lively and vibrant, delivering juicy fruit flavours and fine texture, wonderfully supported by refreshing acidity. The wine is immediately attractive with classic varietal flavours. - 4.5 stars." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Tasting Notes

Aroma Intense lime skin, feijoa, nettles, flinty with a touch of ripe capsicum.
Palate Limes and flint/stone on the palate, with lovely intensity and finesse in a lighter style. The delicacy and balance allow a ripe citrus and lime focus.
Food Match Pair with grilled salmon or pan-fried snapper, served with Mediterranean-style vegetables.
Viticulture Ōhau vineyard is perfect for cool climate wine production. Late, dry autumns provide cool nights ideal for the slow flavour development during the ripening of the fruit. The Sauvignon Blanc fruit was harvested in mid-April 2017.
Winemaking Preserving the vibrant fruit flavours from the vineyard is at the core of our winemaking. To achieve this, a slow, cool fermentation is used. The wine was prepared for bottling in August 2017.
