The 2018 Old Coach Road Sauvignon Blanc is intensely fragrant as it is poured from the bottle. The nose has inviting passionfruit, melon and fresh crushed verbena notes. The palate is clean and flavoursome. Well balanced minerally acidity wraps around appealing layers of intense fruit flavours on the palate, inviting another sip.
In the vineyard, leaves were removed from around the fruiting zone to allow light penetration and air movement around the ripening bunches. Parcels of fruit were picked when flavours, sugars and grape acids were nicely in balance, giving fruit with intensely varietal flavours and a fresh, lasting acidity.
