Profile

This is a drier style of sauvignon blanc, acidity kept nicely in balance with the alcohol and the very little residual sugar that is there, so it’s all about how all these things come together to make a pleasurable whole. I craft my wines so that nothing stands out as one singular spike, instead revealing a lovely layering of flavours and aromas that people can keep finding as they spend time savouring the glass.
Simon Waghorn — Winemaker

The wine is pale straw with green highlights. Powerful gooseberry, white currant, red capsicum, passionfruit, and lime peel aromas. Medium-bodied, with strong flavors of makrut lime, passionfruit, lemongrass and a refreshingly smooth, dry and persistent finish.

Pair with fresh, leafy green salads; goat’s cheese; seafood of all types; and dishes with lifted, aromatic herbs.

Critic awards

Bright, fresh sauvignon with lime, grapefruit, capsicum and lemon curd supported by fine, mouth-watering acidity. Crisp, dry wine with an ethereal texture and lingering finish. High energy wine that is hard to fault.
Bob Campbell

— 94 points, The Real Review

Checking all the boxes, this stunning version is fresh and vibrant yet also complex and full of flavor, from toasted green tea and lemon thyme to mouthwatering passion fruit, yuzu and mango. Ends with hints of white pepper, lemon blossoms and sea salt on the long expressive finish.
MaryAnn Worobiec

— 94 points, Wine Spectator

Lots of lemon and lime skin with some lemongrass and crushed cement. Medium body, good density and plenty of flavor with a creamy texture and a crisp finish. Solid sauvignon.
