Description

Tasting Notes
In the glass the wine is an appealing pale straw yellow with green hues. Aromatically it is one of the more striking Sauvignons we have made, with Hell block shining through showing its characteristic passionfruit, elderflower and lime aromatics. On the palate it is fresh, crisp and dry. Hell block leads the charge as the wine explodes in the mouth. The upper terrace fruit in all its fleshy glory gives mid palate weight and the small amount of barrel ferment knits the wine together with its struck match flint and slightly sweaty, salty goodness.
