2022 Pennies From Heaven Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is named in honour of the much cherished winter rains which fall like ‘pennies from heaven’, replenish our soils and allow the vines to flourish during the growing season.
Whole bunches from our most distinctive Sauvignon Blanc vineyard were hand selected and picked in the cool of the early morning then destemmed without crushing the fruit. Gentle pressing followed and the free run juice was then fermented in small stainless steel tanks between 12 to 14 degrees Celsius, ensuring the lively white grapefruit flavours and aromas were retained. It was then bottled directly thereafter without fining and with minimal filtration to capture the purity of taste and texture.
We hope you feel you get every penny’s worth!
- 93 Points - Wine Orbit, Sam Kim MW- July 2022. “Fresh and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows green apple, lime/lemon zest, fig and white floral aromas, followed by a finely textured palate offering excellent concentration and persistency. Superbly structured by bright acidity, finishing lingering and exuberant. At its best: now to 2027.”
- 93 Points, Wine Showcase Magazine, April 2023 – “Attractive herbaceous bouquet with zesty limes and tropical notes. Well balanced flavours, genuine varietal characters on nose and palate. Good acid backbone.”
