The fruit for 2007 vintage wine was selected from our own estate vineyard and from favourite contract vineyards. The stony soils of our own vineyard regularly produce grapes with lower acids and tropical fruit flavours, while the fruit sourced from our contract vineyards complement these nuances with more herbal, lime and gooseberry flavours.
The grapes were harvested in the cool of the morning to preserve their fresh flavours, and the juice fermented in stainless steel for 4 months.
This 2007 vintage has wonderful gooseberry and tropical fruit aromas.Focused flavours of pineapple, passionfruit, pink grapefruit and ripe gooseberry give way to a well balanced acidity. This is an elegant, fruit forward style of Sauvignon Blanc which has a long, clean finish.
