    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brilliant straw-yellow color with green hues and a pale rim. The bouquet is full, open and voluminous with fresh and powerful passionfruit aromas along with gooseberries, lime fruit and flinty minerals that blossom. Dry to taste, the palate has layers of rich, pungent passionfruit and grapefruit flavours with ripe capsicums and fresh herbs that fill the mouth. The acidity is restrained and a fine textural thread provides line and length, leading to a soft, richly nuanced finish.

    This is an openly accessible and flavorsome Sauvignon with drive and concentration to match salads, vegetables and rich poultry dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lovely lift to the aromas of lemon oil and grapefruit. Supple and generous, with a distinct sweetness to its very ripe yellow fruit flavors. Finishes generous and persistent.

    Peach blossom and yellow apple notes are fragrant and rich, with toasted herb and hay notes. A touch of petrol balances the juicy citrus flavors.
