Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues, lighter edged. The nose is refined in expression with restrained and delicate notes of white stonefruits and florals, unfolding fresh herbs and green stonefruits to form a fine core with nuances of cut grass and nettles. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and tightly bound with concentrated flavours of white and green stonefruits, fresh herbs and nuances of white florals.
The palate has a well-packed, intense heart with a fine-textured line, Soft, lacy acidity provides energy and drive. This gas good drive and the wine carries to a fresh, lively finish. This is an elegant, refined and taut Sauvignon Blanc with subtle oak influence, showing white and green stonefruits, fresh herbs and florals, and fine linearity.
Match with herb-marinated fish and poultry dishes over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Home’ and ‘Dakins Road’ blocks, a portion hand-picked and WBP, the machine picked given some skin contact, the wine half tank-fermented and half barrel-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 1.59 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees undergoing batonnage.
A lovely perfumed nose followed up on the palate with ripe flavours of zesty fruit and a full
long finish. Fresh, clean vibrant wine.
Sparkling Portugese red, bursting with fruit and vibrancy. Delicious with cured hams, meats and quality bread.
