Big Sky Sauvignon Blanc

2023 Vintage

Old vines with gnarly, knotted trunks fatter than your arm. Deep deep roots.

We prune hard and crop low. Judicious skin contact, and judicious bâtonnage. The result is a richly textured Sauvignon, smacking of lemongrass and lime zest, honeyed stonefruit, flinty minerality and lively acidity.


Colour: Pale straw.

Bouquet: Lemongrass, lime blossom, and pineapple.

Palate: Lime zest sorbet, passionfruit and apple, with flinty minerality and lively acidity. Great length and a lingering finish.

Food Match: Great as an aperitif, with herby salads, and fresh seafood.

Viticulturists and winemakers: Katherine Jacobs and Jeremy Corban.
