WINEMAKING NOTES

“The vines carry a maximum of 7 tonnes per hectare. In order to achieve low yields the vineyard is non-irrigated and cane-pruned. Picking time for the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon is usually around early March. The fruit is ripened to approximately 12° baume, but this is not recipe winemaking and fruit flavour ultimately determines picking dates. The fruit is then handpicked and transported to the winery (adjacent to the vines) on the Picardy estate.”

FOOD PAIRING

Amazing with seafood like oysters, prawns and scallops! Anything with chicken, pasta or risotto. Delicious with all cheeses, especiallly blue!

TASTING NOTES

Ripe pineapple, crunchy green apple, white pepper, nettle and kiwi fruit, colour in the aromatically bright bouquet. The palate is striking for its pronounced minerality – limestone, brine and spice. Searing Pemby acidity swooshes across the palate lacing together the minerality and bright tropical fruit characters as it courses down the back of the throat. This is a glossy and complex Sav: a spicy, structured and mineral-laden wine practically screaming out for food.
