Produced from grapes grown in Pemberton and Frankland River WA (90%) with a little from Mudgee NSW (10%), our winemakers fermented the juice in large stainless steel tanks, at cold temperatures, to capture the crisp varietal fruit characters. This premier example of Australian sauvignon blanc exhibits the hallmarks of the varietal – a very pale appearance and zesty tropical fruits with just a hint of grassy, herbal notes and zippy acidity. It has a lovely mouthfeel and great length of flavour.
