This sauvignon is among their ultra premium range of wines, produced from small parcels of fruit selected by Ant Moore himself. A well rounded Sauvignon Blanc, displaying intense lemon flavours with hints of lime. While the nose is subtle, this wine has a great richness, palate length and weight that provides huge flavour intensity on the finish. Tropical floral influence with some warm cut grass notes showing subtle complexity and spice. Full bodied with lovely palate weight and a touch of fruit sweetness, balanced by a slight structural edge with acidity providing a backbone on which the fruit can hang. Finishes with a persistent intensity.
Ideal pairing with Thai, grilled fish, goats cheese salads or just on its own!
