This is intense and lively with keen acidity and pronounced lemon and grapefruit characters, together with a hint of green pepper and cut grass. It shows a racy, lean character, but there’s a bit of pear, citrus and apple fruit sweetness there on the mid-palate binding all the zippy notes together. There’s a lovely presence and harmony to this wine. Grown up Sauvignon Blanc.
It was a good year to be organic (many say it gives vines and fruit greater disease resistance). This organically grown expression is a treat – it has weight, texture and a glorious flavour profile (lime, flint, grapefruit). It keeps on going too…persistence they call it.
