Other Details

Pale yellow with green hues. Very aromatic; poached nectarines, passion-fruit, mealy grapefruit, cumquat, wild thyme and lime citrus.  Slightly creamy, rich in texture, complex (thanks to the ‘wild’ yeast) upfront, succulent.  To follow; caramelised citrus fruits, flinty lees, stone fruits. It’s wonderfully persistent, long and generous. A powerful and opulent wine.

The 2015 Black Edition Sauvignon Blanc is a complex, rich alternative style of sauvignon Blanc, fermented with 100% ‘wild’ yeast in older barrels. A partial malolactic fermentation softens the trademark acidity of this variety and produces a creamy, complex, mellow Sauvignon Blanc which will continue to develop gracefully in bottle.
