Gooseberry, crisp apple and the subtle juicy tropical flavours of pineapple and passionfruit leave the way to a clean fresh palate with nicely balanced mouthfeel.
First Impressions: Plenty of passionfruit and some cassis are prominent on the nose. Almost perfumed aromas of orange blossom and lime make an appearance.
Appearance: A pale yellow, with light green hues on the rim.
Note: Vintages 2014 and 2016 available.
Various sites contributed to this year’s Sauvignon Blanc. The biggest portion was sourced from the original Anchorage vineyard beside the Motueka river bridge, just out of town on the way to the golden beaches and turquoise waters of the Abel Tasman National Park.
Each vineyard site was picked separately to ensure optimum flavour and ripeness.
After destemming and gently pressing the grapes, we chilled the juice and cold
settled it for several days so we get clear juice to ferment at low temperatures to
preserve the volatile flavours. Left to mature without sulphur on fine lees the wine
was finally stabilised and filtered.
