Product Description

This single vineyard wine is a blend of two discrete areas within the Tupari vineyard. The distinct minerality of grapes from ‘Boulder’ Block and the white stonefruit characteristics of grapes from ‘Campers Flat’ are combined to create a wine of balanced complexity.

The Tupari vines were managed to achieve low-cropping levels and as harvest approached Glenn was found in the vineyard tasting the grapes to ensure the flavours were fully mature prior to picking. The grapes were harvested as two separate batches before being gently pressed at the winery. Two yeast strains were specifically selected to add layers of flavour, and 10% of the wine was placed in well seasoned oak to create textual complexity. The wine was then left on the lees for 6 months, stirred weekly, to enhance the creamy palate texture.

The 2012 Tupari Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted stonefruit with a hint of passionfruit. The portion of oak combined with extended time on the lees creates a palate that is rich and creamy howing mineral and citrus flavors.

Food match: Sublime with seafood, try the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc with baked scallops, feshly shucked oyseters or seared crisp snapper.
