The Derwent Valley has a climate ideal for delicate wine grape production.
Grown on a north- facing bank of the Derwent River this 28-year-old cool-climate vineyard just 20kms north of Hobart continues to achieve very high standards. The soils are permeable loams over limestone with a climate ideal for delicate wine grape production.
Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc hand-picked, crushed and pressed under inert gas. The juice was fermented at a cold 9.5 degrees to retain aromatics, lightly finned, filtered and bottled.
Ripe fruit, textured palate and natural acid provide volume and
length. Bright citrus notes lead to a dry and cleansing finish.
Aroma: Lychee, cut grass.
Palate: Tropical fruit, pineapple & spice.
This a fresh, vibrant and zingy style which literally sings in the glass.
