Each vintage, the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are the first grapes to ripen in the vineyard. The scarecrow is still used as an effective deterrent to the local grape-loving birds and has also lent its name to our famous Sauvignon Blanc.

Story: Each vintage, the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are the first grapes to ripen in the vineyard. The scarecrow is still used as an effective deterrent to the local grape-loving birds and has also lent its name to our famous Sauvignon Blanc.
Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions and contributed to lower crops due to the wet weather and windy conditions interfering with fruit set during flowering. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: The nose offers subtle and elegant aromas of passionfruit and snow peas.
Palate: The palate is smooth but lively with delightful tropical fruit flavours, followed by a crisp and refreshing finish.
Food Pairings: A great summer wine, equally at home on its own, at a picnic or with seafood dishes.
Cellaring: Drink now
