Tropical & fresh with aromas with peach and passion fruit, balanced with citrus tones of lime and grapefruit, and hints of green apple. The palate offers citrus and tropical flavors with a nice beam of acidity throughout.
The location of this Sauvignon Blanc vineyard experiences a nice warm temperature during the day, which allows the grapes to ripen, providing the bright tones on the nose and the palate. At night, the vineyard cools off dramatically, preserving the natural acidity, and contributing to the freshness of this varietal.
The grapes are hand harvested, and the juice was cold-fermented in neutral oak barrels, which allows the fermentation to 'breathe', an important component for aromatic and texture development. The finished wine was aged in the same barrel for six months prior to bottling.

Bursting with aromas of cherry, spice, hints of cranberry and tobacco. Flavors of cherry pie, pomegranate and cola with a soft elegant mouthfeel. Amazingly easy-drinking...
