2017 was a return to a more traditional Coonawarra vintage with a cool growing season and mild summer. Harvest was later than in previous years, with Sauvignon Blanc fruit showing high natural acidity, rich flavours and excellent varietal definition.
Barrel fermentation of select parcels (21%) in older French oak barriques for seven months adds structure, complexity and texture.
Elegant herbaceous and gooseberry and tropical notes with hints of lychee. Richly layered fruit and hints of herbaceous notes, balanced by a subtle underlying minerality and a zesty, refreshing finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Sashimi salad with a ponzu dressing, barbecued chilli lime prawns or double baked goats cheese soufflé.
