Classic Sauvignon Blanc
This Trusty Steed has led many on a safe and memorable wine passage. This wine has all the classical familiarity of a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, it has a big lifted nose of stone and tropical fruits and a punchy and delicious palate.
Like riding a horse, there are few tricks to getting these classic flavours. We let the very cold grape juice sit on its own lees for 72 hours with periodic stirring and then ferment the clear juice in a stainless steel tank using catchily named cultured yeast "Zymaflore X5." All the time we are aiming to keep the juice and wine as clean and cool as possible, to retain the beautiful fresh flavours and aromatics. The result is instantly recognisable and as easy to drink as falling off a horse.
Nose: Basil flower, limes, grapefruit
Palate: Melon, blackcurrant, passionfruit
