Imagine an almond friand full of white nectarine, blood orange and rockmelon – laced with linseed, tarragon and lightly smoked tea. This is an alternative style that is both intricate and textural, a delicious concoction created by fermenting sauvignon blanc entirely with naturally occurring yeast.
Bright straw yellow.
Decadent patisserie aromatics - brioche, homemade apricot jam and lemon curd, layers of nectarine, yellow peach and ripe pineapple – infused with herbal nuances of tarragon and thyme.
On the palate it is enveloping, rich, fresh, with fruity flavors in the finish.

Soil composition Soil types vary from the young alluvial deposits of Rapaura and Renwick, which contain high proportions of greywacke river stones, to the older and denser clay-loams of the Southern Valleys.
Harvest By machine and others by hand, all into halftonne bins, which were tipped directly into tank presses. The grapes were pressed lightly and the resulting juice was cold-settled prior to racking into mostly old French oak barriques.
Vinification The juice was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation, the tail end of which continued for well over six months. The wine had occasional lees stirring and approximately two-thirds underwent malo-lactic fermentation.
Ageing It was transferred out of oak prior to the following harvest and left on yeast lees for a further 6 months.
