This wine represents the latest exploration into the

influence of skin contact on Sauvignon Blanc from

our west facing Hillside block.

What we've discovered is that we find more textural

density and aromas gravitating toward tropical fruit

like papaya and peppercorn with modest maceration

times. This wine relies on ripe skins, seeds and acids.

The aging on yeast lees in smaller format wood

assists with suppleness, as does the essential work

of lactic bacteria to further soften the wines steely

resolve.

Enjoy from here to eternity!
