Tasting notes

Lemon, herb, apple, mixed herbs and freshly-mown grass on the nose. The palate is light and fruity and very easy to drink, with lots of attractive citrus fruit on the finish.

Ideas for drinking/food matching

This wine is extremely easy to drink, very versatile and excellent value. Not a complex wine but it has plenty of classic Sauvignon Blanc flavour, without being quite as full-bodied or rich as, say, a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. It can be served chilled at any time, as an aperitif, or with food (seafood or grilled white meat/fish, salads).

Technical Information

This wine is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes were de-stemmed then given a pre-fermentation cold soak for 10–12 hours. Selected yeasts were added to the must prior to alcoholic fermentation which takes around 21 days. The wine was then racked and did not have contact with oak at any time. The residual sugar level is 4.28g/L.
