WINEMAKING NOTES

Carefully blended from a range of parcels from the Smithbrook Estate vineyard. Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are grown on varying aspects within this site. Seasonal variation will impact which parcels perform best in each year for selection in this house blend.

This aromatically lifted blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon exudes guava, passionfruit and orange zest. Partial fermentation in French oak barriques contribute vanillin, nougat aromas to the nose, while adding texture and complexity to the generous palate. It maintains a fresh, tropical flavour profile, with a clean, dry finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Amazing with lighter meats like veal, pork and chicken. Delicious with roasted vegetables and pesto flovours! Perfect with hard cheeses too.
