Given the myriad of parcels and flavours coming from our Seaview Vineyard, isolating just one portion was always going to be a challenge!

Our winemaking team’s goal was to retain the elegance and purity of fruit from the vineyard, whilst allowing some oak and malolactic fermentation influence.

Aromas of dried thyme and blackcurrant, spice and cream dominate the nose. The palate is concentrated with savoury notes, wet stone, nettle and mineral acidity that all come together in perfect harmony. The mid palate is textured and rich, yet elegant.

70% of the wine was filtered and aged on its lees for 8 months, subjected to regular stirring every two weeks. The remainder was aged in French oak, of which 5% was new. The blend was not fined, but was lightly filtered prior to bottling.

“The unique coastal Sauvignon Blanc blocks on our Seaview vineyard have provided inspiration to make an oak influenced Sauvignon Blanc. Fruit in the riper spectrum was carefully selected for this wine and made a portion in predominantly older French oak puncheons with a small percentage of new.

The focus with this wine is to make a Sauvignon Blanc that is rich, savoury, textured and with layers of complexity bought in by the oak – but the oak must be subtle. It is important that the fruit and acidity is still present and the wine is recognisably a Sauvignon Blanc! It is really fun to make as there is a lot of inputs as a winemaker that you contribute – the proportion of barrels to stainless steel aged, what type of barrel and the age, lees work, proportion of malolactic fermentation.

Aromas of dried thyme and white flowers dominate the nose. The palate is rich and textured with a full spectrum of ripe herbal and savoury notes, and fresh acidity that all come together in perfect harmony. The mid-palate is structured and rich, yet elegant. Cellar up to 6 years.”
Tamra Kelly-Washington, Winemaker

The wine would be a perfect match for a classic goat’s cheese salad, summer salads, fresh and cooked seafood.
