This sheltered vineyard is situated in the valley floor, with 50% north/south row orientation and 50% east/west orientation.

Tasting Notes: This is an exuberant Sauvignon Blanc with intense passion fruit, grapefruit and tropical fruit aromas. Juicy acidity fills the palate on first tasting and activates the taste buds with a gorgeous fruit sweetness that carries through to a long finish.
