Multiple blocks of Sauvignon Blanc were harvested to maximise the varietal flavours for this Dalrymple wine. Selected winemaking techniques, including aromatic yeast selection, barrel fermentation and cold fermentation were chosen to enhance the distinctive fruit power identified with Tasmanian Sauvignon Blanc, and to build richness and complexity.
This is a lively wine with elegance, length and colours of pale straw with vibrant green tinges. The nose has those distinctive, rich varietal notes of zesty citrus spice, white flowers and passionfruit known to this variety. Layered and textural, the palate is powerfully flavoured with grapefruit, exotic spice, passionfruit and pepper, yet beautifully balanced by its fine natural acidity.
