Clear pale lemon colour. Aromas of beeswax, lemon sherbet and fresh cut herbs. Full generous mouthfeel from barrel ferment, with green apple zing linger on the back palate. Chalky minerality and white stone fruits are interwoven with fruit-laden acidity. Viticulturist's Notes Sourced primarily from clones 376 and 530 the vines grow in the centre of the Greystone vineyard on deep, silty-loam soils. A long Indian summer encouraged perfect ripening conditions and fruit was picked with beautiful acidity. Small open bunches ensured clean ripe fruit went to the winery. Hand-picked between April 14th - April 30th 2016 Harvest Brix: 21.6 Harvest TA: 6.44 g/L Harvest pH: 3.28 Winemaker's Notes Grapes were gently pressed to tank for brief settling, then transferred to French oak barrels for natural fermentation with wild yeast. 10% malolactic fermentation contributes a creamy and textural element. Naturally settled in barrel for six months on full yeast lees post fermentation, then blended and bottled on site without fining. Bottled: December 14th, 2016 Total Cases: 2,890 TA: 6.23 g/L Alcohol: 13.5% Awards 95pts "Wine of the Week" - Bob Campbell MW "Scented sauvignon blanc with currant bud, nectarine, lime and subtle nutty characters. Great food wine in a bone-dry style, with impressive weight and richness. WINERY TASTING NOTE: Made from Loire Valley clones, this wine is barrel fermented and light straw in colour with aromas of lemon curd, pineapple, gooseberry and fennel leading to a palate that is long and powerful. Tropical and stone fruits are interwoven throughout finishing dry with long driving fruit-laden acidity." 90pts - James Sucklins "Barrel fermented into a nice place with an extruded smoothly textured palate carrying melon, peach and mango fruits long. Drink now. Screw cap." 94pts / 5 stars - Sam Kim 5 stars - 18.5/20 Raymond Chan
