Very pale and brilliant with a bright green tint – typical of young Sauvignon Blanc.
Bright, lifted Sauvignon characters from a very good Margaret River vintage for this variety. Fig, passionfruit, cut grass and a touch of wild herbs fill the nose.
An intensely flavoured palate with juicy acidity. Passionfruit, fig and melon drive the palate, which is vibrant, refreshing and long.

A prolonged cool and wet growing season meant the vines were lush and healthy heading into ripening. This resulted in later harvest dates, accentuated by ripening through the wettest and coolest February and March in Margaret River for more than 15 years. These conditions produced highly aromatic whites, which were balanced by an extremely dry April that allowed the last of the white varieties to achieve full ripeness.
Produced from vineyards across the region, our Sauvignon Blanc is unique in that it captures the array of fruit characters from across Margaret River. All the fruit was picked in the cool of the night to retain freshness and aromatic intensity. Following gentle pressing and temperature-controlled fermentation, the wine was blended and filtered only once. This minimal handling has helped to retain the attractive primary fruit flavours and aromas so critical to our style.
I don't know about breathing space, but the riotous, joyous burst of flavours this wine offers takes your breath away. It opens with passionfruit, pineapple and guava on entry to the mouth, then swings decisively to fresh cut grass, asparagus and nettle on the finish. And there's no shortage of crunchy acidity to cleanse the finish and aftertaste. To 2020.95
