    • Vineyard Notes

      Kym Anderson's vineyard at Charleston. Single vineyard.

    • Winemaking

      Full malolactic fermentation to create great suppleness, texture and complexity - I really love the distinctive cashew, nougat character that it brings to the wine.

    • Tasting Notes

      Elements of our sauvignon blanc, with definite hints of delicious nougat, crème caramel and cashew from the malolactic fermentation (in other words, from the softening of the natural acid).

    • Style

      Full malolactic fermentation in seasoned French oak (9 months).

    • Colour

      Bright, pale straw with green tints.

    • Bouquet

      Complex - hints of passionfruit but as Rob says, if he hadn't made the wine himself, he may not recognise it as being from the sauvignon blanc fruit otherwise.

    • Palate

      Elements of our sauvignon blanc, with definite hints of delicious nougat, crème caramel and cashew from the malolactic fermentation (in other words, from the softening of the natural acid).

    • Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential

      This will surprisingly cellar for years and will become that much more complex, butterscotchy and lush, with that signature softness and dry finish.

    • Food Matches

      Asian cuisine (with subtle chilli only - generally no chilli with wine!), shellfish, light Italian.
