“Vibrant and punchy fruit from our cooler vineyard sites.”

Driven by a desire to explore our extensive cool climate Sauvignon Blanc sources, we created this blend from some of our finest parcels to illuminate the fruit purity and varietal expression of our special sites. A wine of tension and drive providing immediate enjoyment, or rewarding with careful cellaring.

Food Pairing Notes
Delicious with crispy whiting accompanied by a soy and ginger dressing or a lemon and asparagus risotto. Or, simply enjoy with fresh goats cheese drizzled with honey.
The Vineyard
The fruit was sourced from our cooler vineyard sites, Crossroads (52%) and Chapman Brook (41%), that are perfectly suited to Sauvignon Blanc. Vibrancy, varietal expression and site specific characteristics are crafted through careful canopy manipulation. The vineyard team is tasked with delivering pristine fruit to the winery with crunchy acidity and fresh aromatics. To achieve this, the fruit was harvested in the cool of the night capturing purity and elegance.
Winemaking
The fruit harvested during the cool of the night and early mornings was destemmed, crushed and rapidly pressed to capture vibrant fruit characters with bright acidity. The juice was either cold settled or underwent flotation. Low temperature fermentation was used with select yeast to accentuate fresh fruity varietal characteristics. The majority of batches were fermented in stainless steel tanks to drynesss with individual lots resting on lees for two months. A small portion of the blend was fermented in seasoned French oak building texture. Once assembled, the final blend was minimally fined and filtered before being Estate bottled.
