Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting notes

 

Very pale yellow with brilliant slight green shades, this refreshing wine expresses herbal notes above broom flowers and box. The fruit is ripe but vibrant, with green apples, green pears and grapefruit, hints of green chilis and more exotic touches such as passion fruit.
The mouth begins sharp and fresh and then develops a good volume with an excellent richness for the grape. The mineral column gives the structure, helped buy a vibrant and juicy acidity but the wine is also all about fruitiness and preserves the complexity above nerves and austere greenness. The finish is made of flowers, white and exotic fruits enhanced by mineral accents.

Dressed with a pale gold yellow, dense and brilliant, the 2010 version of this chardonnay is maybe the most elegant and balanced of all.
