A classic ‘top of the south’ style, vibrant and ‘crunchy’ in spirit. A small portion of high solids, wild fermentation in neutral oak has tamed the most overt of Sauvignon characters and contributed subtle palate texture and depth.

Organically grown on the Home and Morison Vineyards, our vines are pruned to a single fruiting wire. Higher density planting than what is typical for this variety does ensure average yields are achieved however.  This fruit was machine harvested in several parcels to ensure a spectrum and balance of flavors. Predominantly tank fermented using a selection of aromatic yeasts, a small percentage of high-solids juice was wild fermented in barrel. The savory, spicy, very textural character of this portion contrasts markedly with the fruity freshness and varietal purity of the tank fermented portion. Largely concealed within the overall blend there is nonetheless an implied layer of texture and dimension which contributes to the finished wine.

Generous, bright  aromas of floral citrus, fresh passionfruit, melon,  spice and a nettly, crushed herb fragrance.  The palate has an appealing breadth, a succulent core of soft citrus and rock melon suggestive of sweetness in spite of being genuinely dry in style?  A fine, mineral acidity balances and refreshes this fruit-rich, almost creamy mouthfeel which finishes with a hint of aromatic spice. Organic. 13.25% ABV.
