    Winemaker's Notes:

    Whole bunches were crushed, chilled and pressed before fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. No malolactic fermentation as we look to protect fruit purity and natural acidity.

    A benchmark for Australian Sauvignon Blanc. Unwooded to maximise varietal punch. Fresh and zippy with pronounced "pink grapefruit" characters. Ripe middle palate finishing with racy acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Practice makes perfect, as does attention to the most minute detail. Pale straw-green, it has a complex bouquet with notes of herb and lychee followed by an intense, tightly focused palate with a touch of kiwifruit hiding behind the minerally acidity that binds the wine into a coherent whole.

    This white is bright and zingy, offering pretty apple, grapefruit and lime flavors that blossom on a supple frame and persist nicely. Drink now 250 cases imported.

    The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc gives intense grapefruit peel, lemon juice, orange blossom and lime leaf aromas. Bone dry (less than 2 g/l residual sugar), crisp and medium bodied, this wine lends a bit of viscous/creamy texture to generous flavor concentration, continuing through the long finish. Drink it now to 2013.
