Maiden vintage of an innovative white blend consisting of Verdehlo - an exotic Portuguese variety; and the perennially popular Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

about the harvest: Hand-harvested in the cool of the morning

in the cellar : Crushed and gently pressed, followed by a cool fermentation in stainless steel, prior to blending and bottling. Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to maintain the exotic fruit flavours and crisp acidity of this blended dry white wine. Verdehlo’s intense citrus, pineapple and pear aromatics combine with the tropical fruit flavours of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay’s apple and crisp acidity.
