Rich and tropical, with flavours of ripe citrus and stone fruits balanced by a crisp minerality. This is a single-vineyard wine with pure expressions of their variety and true reflections of the terroir of the Vavasour estate vineyards.
This special bottling of Sauvignon Blanc showcases the very best of our estate and is made only in years when fruit is of exceptional quality. Careful canopy and yield management, including leaf plucking and shoot thinning, ensure great concentration and character. Grapes are whole-bunch pressed for gentle extraction and fermented with indigenous yeast in seasoned oak barriques. Partial malolactic fermentation balances out acidity and adds weight to the palate. Aging for 14 months in barrel provides additional aromatics, flavours and structure.
