Description

Premium Sauvignon Blanc grapes are allocated to a Fume’ blanc style, meaning the highest quality Sauvignon Blanc grapes are allocated to barrel fermentation.  Selected Sauvignon Blanc grapes are picked and processed as usual but the initial free run juice is sent to a combination of new and old French oak barriques.

COLOUR  Medium Straw

AROMA   This wine has a pronounced and abundant bouquet of white stones fruits and citric notes mingled with fine and very subtle oak undertones

FLAVOUR The fine linear acidity of this wine gives an initial freshness on the palate.  As the layers of flavour unfold the power of the wine becomes noticeable.  It starts to show a complexity of flavours, that are complemented by some oak maturation.  The palate is quite rich, medium bodied and mouth filling.  It finishes with a dry, but flavoursome and lingering mouthfeel.

Suited to grilled or deep fried seafood.
