Tasting Note

Pronounced, expressive nose of green fruits, fresh cut grass and minerals. The palate is clean and ultra crisp; medium bodied and packed with greengage, lime and gooseberry fruit. The finish is clean, showing a real sense of place through its minerality.

Winemaking

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are pressed as soon as they are picked. The must is allowed to settle, then the alcoholic fermentation begins. A few weeks later, the wine is clarified with a natural filtering agent (a clay soil derivative) to eliminate impurities. Lastly, it is racked, filtered, and bottled.

Food Recommendation

It is a brilliant accompaniment to shellfish, fish and white meat dishes. It is also very good as an aperitif. It should be served between 11°C to 12°C.

Press

  • With its ‘plush, exotic aromas and fleshy passion fruit flavour profile, with a grippy finish’, according to team leader Sarah Jane Evans MW, a Gold medal was inevitable. Charlie Carter of Ten Green Bottles added praise for its ‘delicate apricot fruit aromas and refined palate that’s crisp but rounded, with more apricot and other candied fruits mingling pleasantly on the finish’, while Nelio Pinto of Candlesticks thought it ‘well weighted and viscous, with some fresh thyme, and a fresh finish’.
