GROWING SEASON

A dry and sun-drenched summer in 2020 led to fantastic fertility, perfectly moderated by a mild winter and a long cool spring. A hot and dry start to summer led to beautiful vine growth, followed by a cool ripening season with sporadic summer rains. The resultant wines are characterised by intense aromatics, coating natural acidity, and ultra-fine tannin and tension.  

VARIETY

2 parts Sauvignon Blanc | 1 part Semillon

WINEMAKING

Fruit is harvested based on flavours and natural acidity. A third of the blend is fermented and aged for 2 months on lees in seasoned French oak barrels to enhance mouth feel and to introduce complexion elements, while the balance is cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness.
