Tasting notes
Musk melon, lime and minerality dominate the nose. The palate is fresh and juicy with luscious pear and kiwifruit on the mid-palate. A well balanced, medium weight wine.

The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc opens with gooseberry, green apple and grass notes with a touch of chalk dust. Medium-bodied with a good amount of freshness and varietal character, it finishes medium-long and with good balance. Drink it now to 2015.

Technical notes
After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks and fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavors.
