CONVERGENCE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2021
Nose: Passionfruit, white peach, gooseberry and lime juice mingle with subtle notes of caper berries and flint
Palate: Dry and saline, persistent flavours of white currant, golden kiwi fruit and stone fruit are revealed alongside bright, mouth-watering acidity. The distinctive palate has a gravelly texture and a ripe, pure finish
Food Pairing: Pacific or Asian fare
Winemakers Notes: Crops were significantly reduced due to early spring frosts and a cold, wet flowering period. Summer was incredibly dry and this lead to a very early harvest. The resulting fruit quality was outstanding and wines from the 2021 vintage might just be exceptional. Harvested early morning and lightly pressed, the juice was fermented cool, predominately in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and distinctive varietal character. A small portion was fermented in concrete egg tank and clay amphora to add a grainy texture to the palate. The wine was then aged on light yeast lees for three months to gain complexity and increase mouthfeel.
