Tasting Notes: Behind the pale green/yellow color lurks a vivid bouquet with smidgen of grass that puts your palate on notice. The message is delivered in the form of fresh sage, blackcurrant, fresh passion fruit and a jolt of lemon/lime freshness. This is an aromatic wine full to the brim with a savory spectrum. Fresh citrus, minerals and a hint of the sea jostling about yards from the vineyard give the wine a bracing palate quench-ability.
Winemaking Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc is estate grown and sustainably farmed. Rapaura Vineyards produce very pretty wines due to the free draining nature of the soils. Omaka Vineyard soils have a higher clay content, producing wines with more power on the palate. All blocks are fermented separately. Fermentation vessels are predominantly stainless steel, with a very small percentage in French oak, to contribute a layer of texture. Fermentation takes place at approximately 15 degrees Celsius and lasts approximately 3 weeks. Skin contact is avoided, and the wine rests on lees for approximately 6 weeks. It is lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
