Fresh and attractive aromas. The palate show some great minerality with touch of pepper.
Crisp and Zippy in the finish.


Another wet spring due to La Nina. No frost in October 2022. After some good spring rain, the weather did not warm up enough at flowering to have a good bunch set. The bunches were all here, but with small berries and underweight. The growth and workload were massive in the vineyard. January to March were nice and warm with no extreme permitting to the crop to ripen nicely. Therefore, the quality of the wine is excellent.


Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc, sustainably grown
Region: 100% Coal River valley, Southern Tasmania
Yield: 6-7 tonnes per hectare

Pressed and De-juiced with only slight pressure prior to cold-settling overnight. Racked into a stainless steel tank for inoculated ferment, controlled at 18-20˚C. Kept on ferment lees for eight weeks to fill palate structure, then cold stabilised before filtration.

Bottled the 28.06.2022
