Our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc has lifted aromas of passionfruit, guava, orange blossom and blackcurrant leaf. Full of juicy, ripe, tropical flavours and a moreish minerality, this is a delicious glass of wine.

“Intensely fruited and beautifully lifted, the bouquet shows passionfruit, green rockmelon, kaffir lime and lemon peel characters, leading to a vibrant palate that is filled with delicious flavours. It is punchy and lively with fine texture and refreshing acidity, finishing persistent and tasty”. Sam Kim Reviews Aug-18

“Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is softly full and voluminous with fresh aromas of pungent passionfruit and tropical fruit harmoniously integrated with notes of fresh herbs and snow peas. This has a near-ethereal expression. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and bright with good depth and soft concentration, showing gentle layers of passionfruit, tropical fruits and herbs. The mouthfeel is rounded with a soft, smooth, near-slippery line and background, refreshing, lacy acidity. The flavours carry to an elegant, soft finish. This is a softly concentrated, rounded Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, tropical fruit and fresh herb flavours on a smooth-flowing palate”. Raymond Chan Reviews Aug-18
