Natura Vista 2014
In the glass
A very complex nose with abundant green limes, a hint of blackcurrant and a subtle mineral streak. The palate is concentrated, fresh and in harmony with a low percentage of new oak. Loads of melon and limes give way to a fresh, pure and persistent finish.
In the vineyard
Our Sauvignon Blanc blocks were planted in 1997, 1998 and 2005, each one a different combination of rootstock and scion. Each block provides a great building block in the final wine. Our flagship Semillon block was planted in 1993, with the soil in both cultivar blocks being course sand of the Clovelly formation.
In the cellar
The Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in stainless steel and the Semillon is transferred to 600 litre French oak barrels for fermentation. After fermentation, the blend is made and aged for 7 months in oak barrels
to integrate. After bottling, the wine is further aged for 12 months before release.
