Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Vibrant florals and cool tropical notes punctuate the nose. The generosity you are led to expect from the aroma follows through on the palate. Great concentration makes this a very mouth-filling wine which is stretched out to a long finish by a chalky minerality typical of the Waimea Plains.
Production Notes Pressing was monitored so to separate free run and lightly pressed juice from hard pressed juice. The press cut being made when extraction of flavour was good and just light dusty phenolics were beginning to show in the juice. The aim being to maximize the fresh aromatics typical to Sauvignon, and also create a delicate phenolic structure to support the flesh of the wine. The juices were then cold settled to obtain a clarified juice and then inoculated with yeast chosen for its ability to contribute to the aromatic profile. The ensuing ferments were carefully mothered and arrested when the individual wines were harmonious. For a textural component to the wine, a small percentage of the final blend was aged on fine lees. Come late June each wine was carefully graded and the most expressive yet convivial blend was decided upon.
Food Pairing Notes Combined with a pleasing acidity it makes a scrumptious and refreshing aperitif and an excellent companion to light fresh meals.
