Vintage Conditions

A cooler and slightly wetter than average winter delayed the start of the growing season in Rutherglen, however once it began the vineyards experienced regular rainfall and warm temperatures throughout the spring. This was followed by warm and dry summer months. The surprising thing about the temperatures during the ripening period was that even though they were slightly up on average, we did not experience any days of extreme heat. This consistently warm weather shortened the growing season and meant that the time taken for vintage was considered average across our vineyards.
This consistent warm weather enabled the grapes to develop lovely full flavours and that coupled with the fantastic colour means that our red and fortified wines are showing high levels of fruit flavour and character. Our white wines are also looking very good with high levels of texture and fantastic flavour.

Tasting Notes

Our white is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes, a variety which is more commonly known for being grown in cooler climates.
Our version of this white is fresh and herbaceous while having a mouth filling mid-palate.
It supplies the typical Sauvignon Blanc varietal cut grass and gooseberry with tropical fruit aromas.
The palate is fresh and crisp as you would expect from Sauvignon Blanc, yet has a slightly buttery mouth-filling mid-palate that gives the pronounced freshness and zestiness a supported textural backbone.
A perfect white for any occasion.

Winemaking

We have three different Sauvignon Blanc clones planted in the vineyard. The grapes were picked in February to capture the maximum amount of fresh herbaceous flavours, and were harvested in the cool of the night and handled gently with non-oxidative winemaking techniques and cool temperatures at every stage. The wine was 100% fermented in stainless steel tanks to ensure it has maintained all of its varietal freshness, crispness and great acidity.
