A complex and textural wine from the gravels of our Waipara riverside home - dense with flavours of summer, fresh citrus, tangerine zest, granny smith and wet river gravels. The palate has silky texture that is balanced by the refreshing acid backbone and cleansing tannins. Flavours follow through from the nose, Kaffir lime, Meyer lemon, crunchy stone fruits and underlying tropical flavours. 66% of the final wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks, to preserve the crisp fruit profile and to protect the distinctive thiols of our Sauvignon Blanc. The remaining 33% of the wine is fermented with high solids, with wild yeast in old French oak. This brings in the complexity of texture and minerality to the final wine. After three months maceration on lees all components were blended and stabilized in early spring
