Originating from 35-year-old vines rooted in sandy alluvial soil in the estates riverine area, this Cuvée, or blend, is achieved by two pickings – one earlier in the harvest and another slightly later.
Grown in the estate’s prime site for Sauvignon, this results in a complex wine, with a sensuous combination of passion fruit, nettles and minerality. Will mature beautifully for 2-4 years.
