Limited stock.

The wine has a bright colour with green tinge.

Generous whiffs of tropical fruits, asparagus, green figs, gooseberries and green peppers characterize the nose.

The flavours on the nose follow through to the palate to create a well balanced wine with a lingering aftertaste.

Grapes were harvested early in the morning to retain their cool temperatures. Loads were protected en-route to the winery and dry ice pellets were applied to create a reductive environment during processing. After destemming and crushing the mash was pumped through a mash cooler to the press. Inline sparging with nitrogen gas and carbon dioxide was applied to protect the juice from oxidation. A brief moment of skin contact was allowed and light pressing followed. Pressings were separated from the first run and fermented separately. The wines were fermented between 13 and 15°C with the aid of chosen yeast strains.

85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Semillon.
