"This is an intense wine with some elegant softness. It is fruity & fresh, lively, with fresh herbs, citrus & peach notes. The length is full & vibrant & balances beautifully with the lively acidity present." - Decanter Magazine
★★★★– 91 points Sam Kim – Wine Orbit
"Green apple & melon flavors lead the way, with aromatic pops of citrus zest & a refreshing finish." - Wine Spectator
Beautifully fragrant, the immediately appealing nose shows nectarine, rock melon, feijoa & lime zest characters with a hint herbaceous notes. The palate is succulent & lively, & displays excellent fruit weight & intensity, finishing juicy with a fine linger!
The Estate Sauvignon Blanc can be best enjoyed with a wide range of dishes including (shell) fish, poultry, salads or simply as a classy aperitif.
Made from 92% Pinot Noir & 8% Sauvignon Blanc, the colour is a beautiful pale-pink & the bouquet exudes red cherry, strawberries & delicate citrus fruit. The palate is bright & youthful, full of cherries, strawberry, ripe apple, spice & cinnamon.
A stunning wine best chilled & enjoyed with friends sharing good times.
The wine is elegantly fragrant on the nose showing grapefruit, lemon peel, flint & subtle herbaceous characters. The palate offers pristine fruit flavours & fine texture, brilliantly structured by bright acidity. The wine is beautifully poised & fresh, & displays delicate fruit intensity.
