Sauvignon Blanc 1997

This vintage was cropped low and picked with good flavours and in perfect condition at 23 brix. The colour is light gold, and the nose sweet and complex, showing passionfruit and lightly honeyed and dried straw characters, with hints of something I can only describe as ‘mineral'. The palate is weighty but balanced - presently quite lively; the flavours are strong and well defined, tasting of apples through to passionfruit, with quite a silky texture and considerable persistence. A great deal of effort is put into the vineyard to create the appropriate flavours and style in our Sauvignon blanc for a food wine. It can be matched with seafood, salads, quiches or as an aperitif. It should be quite good drinking as a young wine within a few months, or as a developed style over many years. View cellaring information >
