RegionOrange, NSW
WinemakerAndrew Higgins
ColourPale straw with green hues
AromaIntense tropical notes of passionfruit & guava coupled with subtle blackberry leaf & lemongrass notes.
PalateFresh with great flavour intensity and zesty, juicy acidity. Texture and seamless integration is a feature of the wine from partial barrel fermentation followed by time spent maturing on yeast lees.
Growing ConditionsGood winter rainfall filled the soil profile and allowed for a great start to the season. This was followed by a warm & dry Spring with minimal rainfall events. Summer was cool with several welcome rain events allowing the vines to progress and replenish their resources and continue growing with minimal stress or disease pressure. February temperatures were consistently above average which allowed the fruit to easily progress through to optimum ripeness.
Vinification/MaturationIndividual blocks of Sauvignon Blanc were picked based on flavour ripeness and style. These parcels were gently crushed and pressed to ensure minimal colour and phenolic extraction. After gentle fining and settling, the juices were then carefully racked and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Predominately fermented cool between 13-15 degrees in tank for aromatic fruit flavours. A portion was barrel fermented in new and older French oak for texture and length. The wines were then left on natural yeast lees for a further 4 months to build texture and complexity. The wine was then blended, gently fined and bottled.
