  • Tasting Note: Herbaceous Sauvignon-Sémillon blend from northern New Zealand, the wild ferment bringing out notes of fennel bulb and tropical fruit as well as adding layers of texture.
  • Food Matching: Try with sushi or sashimi or try with a classic beef tatare, it will blow your mind.
  • Vineyard: Sourced from 4 vineyards; Sidewinder, Rootrake, North Basin, South 3. Vines are trained in two cane VSP. These unirrigated vineyards are naturally low yielding resulting in 10 - 18 bunches per vine yielding very concentrated fruit.
  • Producer note (short): Ripe tropical characters combine with chalk dust and fresh herbs with complex fennel bulb characters from the wild fermentation. The palate is focused and structured with a long dry finish.
  • Vinification: As always the fruit was hand harvested and in 2013 in excellent condition. We harvest the Sauvignon blanc based on the acidity and generally find very exotic fruit characters. Sémillon we get as ripe as possible looking for very ripe and golden bunches. The Sémillon and a portion of the Sauvignon Blanc was fermented seperately in oak puncheons as clear juice and cultured yeast and the remainder Sauvignon Blanc in tank as cloudy juice and wild yeast.
  • Awards and Press News: Gold Medal 95/100 - Smoky minerality on the nose. Dense mid-palate with tangy, grassy citrus fruit and a touch of tropical melon. Poised, precise finish with great length. International Wine Challenge 2018
