Wine.comThe Drylands Sauvignon Blanc is a direct reflection of the terroir where the grapes are grown. The fruit for this wine is grown in dry, deep, fine alluvium soils that encourage a long, cool ripening period. A variety of trellising systems add complexity to the finished wine. Cool nights and a long, hot summer allowed the vines to achieve balanced growth with crops balanced by healthy, full leaf canopies. Autumn delivered a long spell of mild and sunny days with cool nights, perfect for flavor development. The fruit was harvested at optimum maturity with excellent balance and concentration of flavor. The result is a fresh, vibrant fruit character, backed by crisp herbaceous notes that overflow with intense passionfruit and citrus aroma that leap-out-of-the-glass.
