Tasting Notes
The 2017 vintage Sauvignon Blanc has an intriguing and intense nose of tropical fruit, pineapple and jasmine. The crisp and dry palate is nicely balanced by the restrained fruit flavours of juicy lime, pineapple, honeydew and a touch of herb and spice, with a long, flavourful finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 2017 vintage developed in to one of the most outstanding vintages of recent years in the Yarra Valley. The conditions were mild and warm without any unduly hot days allowing the grapes to ripen evenly. Two clones of Sauvignon Blanc were harvested in separate passes to preserve the fresh vibrant fruit characters along with richer tropical notes and natural acidity.
Winemaker Notes
The free run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a very cool temperature over a six-week period to maintain the fresh fruit and the lively crisp acid character. Bottling occurred soon after vintage to maintain freshness.
Food Pairing Notes
Miso-glazed salmon.
