Vinification Details

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are carefully selected and are harvested at aromatic maturity to avoid over ripeness. The fermentation happens at low temperature to preserve the grapes aromas. The wine is then matured on its lees for more complexity.

meh

I'm a massive French wine fan, and a big fan of a nice crisp white as well - this tasted like neither. Not unpalateable, but the aftertaste was awful - I've had better Australian whites out of the corner shop - and that's saying something on both fronts.

A Crowd Pleaser
