This was harvested from the home vineyard, quite late in the season, when the grapes had been gaining little in sugar but continuing to progress in flavour. The flavours are ripe, appearing almost sweet, and the wine shows good weight in the mid to back palate without detracting from its elegance. It has quite a strong lemony colour for a young wine and a soft-textured palate. I would describe the flavours as limes with hints of lychees and I find it attractive for drinking now, although a gentle underlay of 'sappy' fruit tannins and the pure ripe flavours make this a Sauvignon which should age gracefully.
The structure and flavours of this wine also make it well suited to accompany food - try it with vegetable or fish soup as well as with more conventional fish, quiche and cheese.
