Fresh and fragrant with aromas of lime, flint and green apple. A delightful mineral, lime oil and citrus palate leads to a zingy, vibrant finish.

Reviews: "The wine shows fabulous aromas of ripe stone fruit, pineapple, kaffir lime and green tea on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is fleshy and vibrant. It is wonderfully fruited and generously expressed with delicious flavours and fine texture. A highly enjoyable sauvignon. - 4.5 stars." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Tasting Notes

Aroma Intensely aromatic, with flinty, lime skin and green apple notes.
Palate The flinty palate presents a lime oil and citrus profile. The acid line carries these flavours to a zingy, vibrant finish.
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 late March 2018.
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 July 2018.
Alc/Vol 12.0%
