A small parcel of carefully selected Sauvignon Blanc fruit was harvested from our Woodside Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills on the 27th February 2019.
Grapes were crushed and de-stemmed before gentle air bag pressing, taking the free-run juice fraction only. After cold settling for 48 hrs, the juice was inoculated with carefully selected yeast. A long, slow and cool fermentation followed before fining, filtering and bottling.
An aromatic, fruit-driven styled wine. The palate is clean and crisp of medium weight and alcohol.

Clear, pale lemon.
Refreshing green apple, mint and pineapple.
Driven by lemon and passionfruit, the acid is clean and gentle, balanced by a slightly grapefruit sweetness at the end of the palate.

Grapes for this single vineyard wine were hand harvested on March 12 from two small blocks on our Uley vineyard at the northern end of the Piccadilly Valley.
Initial juice analysis showed a Baumé of 11.6 degrees, pH 3.09 and titratable acid of 7.7 g/litre. After crushing and gentle pressing, the juice was fermented to dryness at low temperatures to enhance fresh fruit characters.Following stabilisation in tank, the wine was filtered and bottled on 2nd July 2019. Alcohol 12.5%.
Classically varietal and aromatic, the wine displays citrus, pear, guava, elderflower, herbaceous and faint grassy aromas followed by a generous palate with persistent fruit flavours, minerality and crispness and a spicy, tingling finish from the natural grape acidity.
