Tasting Notes

Clear and brilliant this wine shows a pale straw colour. The nose is clean and fresh with a forthcoming intensity. Exotic aromas of tropical fruit adds to the attractive freshness.

A dry and smooth entry with flavours of ripe pineapple, guava and melon that follow through. A crisp acidity, well balanced with the fruity flavours adds to the lingering aftertaste.


Ageing Potential

Enjoy within 2-3 years

Blend Information

100% Sauvignon Blanc

In The Vineyard

Our Sauvignon Blanc vines grow on a part of the farm which is situated between two natural hills. This allows the cool Atlantic breeze to cool off the grapes during the summer months.
