Sauvignon Blanc is harvested in stages to provide a spectrum of flavours, while the Semillon is left on the vines as long as possible to develop ripe, fully mature characters. Grapes are gently pressed and the juices are naturally inoculated through the action of localised indigenous yeasts. Sauvignon Blanc is vinified in fermenters at lower temperatures to retain the vibrancy of fruit, Semillon is treated to a course in old oak barriques, enhancing structure, richness and length. Upon completion, components are rested on yeast lees (sue lie) for several months to add luxurious textures and flavours, before an assemblage determined by tastings, into the final wine.
Light straw hues. Exotic aromas, tropical spice and turkish musk, passionfruit and paw paw, supported by an array of citrus fruits and wild thyme. Good concentration in the mouth, refined and elegant with a spine of tingling minerality and crisp acidity.
