This tank fermented style of Sauvignon Blanc demonstrates vibrant aromas of passionfruit, lemon grass, and fresh herbaceous notes of mint and jalapeno. The palate shows bright acidity and great length, with ripe citrus flavours balanced by a savoury salinity that is typically seen at Coal Pit from youth through to maturity. This minerality is likely reflective of the high concentration of schist in the soil of the Coal Pit Vineyard.

An elegant varietal expression with fine fruit purity - graceful and light, reflective of both the season and gentle handling in the winery.

A versatile food wine with ageing potential. 

Rosie matches this wine with smoked Kahawai and caper paté, charred asparagus with toasted almonds.
