A small portion was fermented in older French oak barriques, which has added texture and complexity to this wine.

Awards & Reviews

Winestate Magazine - Wine Of The Year Awards - Sauvignon Blanc wine of the year, Gantleys of Queenstown Trophy

Pale straw in colour. The wine combines big ripe aromatics with a serious palate that displays complexity and great texture. Passion fruit, pawpaw and lime aromas leap from the glass. The palate displays these characters and more with a chalky texture, lovely complexity and a crisp grassy finish.
