Passionfruit, fresh herbaceous notes of cut grass and tomato bush. Depth of savoury character, textural with a lengthy finish. Barrel fermentation followed by ageing on lees delivers textural character and complexity in this distinctly savoury style Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: Passionfruit, grassy/tomato bush herbaceous notes, savoury spice. Palate: Passionfruit, fresh grass, textural mid palate with cool climate acidity to a lengthy finish
Vineyard Notes
Produced from grapes grown at Strathlynn on the west bank of the Tamar River. Hillside slopes in the Tamar Valley offer vines some protection from prevailing westerly winds, promoting warm, settled and relatively dry growing condition. Sites around the Tamar Valley are Vertosol (black cracking clay) soils which have excellent water holding capacity, offering a steady supply of moisture and nourishment to the vines throughout the growing season. Vines are grown on Vertical Shoot Positioned (VSP) trellises, which help to expose bunches to the sun, thus achieving optimum ripeness with well-balanced flavours and fine, natural acidity. With the foresight to planting Sauvignon Blanc in Tasmania in 1989 we are now rewarded with stunning concentration and depth of flavours from these pioneering vineyard plantings. Fruit is hand-picked, with selective harvests taking place from mid-March to early April.
Winemaker Notes
Selectively picked in the cold morning hours on the West bank of the Tamar. The naturally chilled fruit was gently pressed to give clean juice for cold settling. This juice was then transferred to barrel, taking the light fluffy lees, for fermentation in French oak barriques. Sequential inoculation of a Pichia yeast strain followed by a saccharomyces strain was used to add complexity to the wine. Following primary and partial malolactic fermentation the wine was aged in barrel on lees for 8 months prior to bottling.
