Quick Overview

Sandhill Estate & Hidden Terrace Vineyard

Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Clear and bright with a fresh, clean aroma of passionfruit, yellow apple, pink grapefruit, golden kiwi and peach
This light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc has a refreshing mouth-feel and flavours of citrus, gooseberry and white peach.
Notes of pink grapefruit, lemon, lime, green apple and lemongrass sing on the finish.
A fabulous spring and summer sipper. Or pair with pan-fried fish filets with fresh herbs; herbed pasta salad; asparagus salads; cool refreshing gazpacho; basil pesto on pasta or chicken; halibut with a corn, cucumber and tomato relish; goat cheese appetizers; spinach quiche; spring pea risotto.

A cool, wet spring gave way to a late start to the growing season, which led directly into a hot summer with a record breaking dry spell. This accelerated the ripening, bringing the fruit back on track. September brought cooler weather, slowing the ripening and allowing a good window for picking. This resulted in wines that are more balanced with lower alcohols and higher natural acidity. Overall, the 2017 vintage was lower in heat units than 2016 but still higher than average.

Wine Making The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were picked from Sandhill Estate and Hidden Terrace vineyards in the cool of the early morning hours. Within moments of arriving at the winery, the fruit was pressed directly to stainless steel tanks where it was cold settled before fermentation. Special selected yeast was used to enhance varietal characteristics. 100% stainless steel fermentation and aging.
