WINE: Sauvignon Blanc 2017

REGION: Nelson

STYLE: Dry

WINEMAKING: Each vineyard site was picked separately to ensure optimum flavour and ripeness. After destemming and gently pressing the grapes, we chilled the juice and cold settled it for several days so we get clear juice to ferment at low temperatures to preserve the volatile flavours. Left to mature without sulphur on fine lees the wine was finally stabilised and filtered

APPEARANCE: A pale yellow, with light green hues on the rim

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Plenty of passionfruit and some cassis are prominent on the nose. Almost perfumed aromas of orange blossom and lime make an appearance.

PALATE: Gooseberry, crisp apple and the subtle juicy tropical flavours of pineapple and passionfruit lead the way to a clean fresh palate with a nicely balanced mouth-feel.

ACCOMPANIMENTS: Chilled just as is or with fresh seafood on a balmy day.
