This beautiful Sauvignon Blanc comes from two Estate blocks: B2 and B3. With only two acres planted in the property, it was possible to capture the complexity of the varietal. Due to the different profile of soils and sun orientation in both blocks, the final result is more complex with layers of aromas and flavors. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks until bone dry and racked into stainless steel drums where it aged 6 months sur lie with a weekly bâtonnage. The stirring of the lees helped build a gorgeous, full-bodied wine with a silky mineral mouthfeel despite its vivid acidity and rich flavors. The inviting aromas of orange blossoms, lemon zest, guava, and ripe pineapple are followed by a palate full of juicy grapefruit and pure citrus flavors.
