Totally unworried about competition from across the Tasman, Portet's style of Sauvignon Blanc enjoys a growing demand in Qantas Business class and throughout the world. Dominique Portet has brought flair and fancy French styling to harvests of the most splendid Yarra Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Parcels are collated from the family vineyard at Coldstream, a unique terroir which achieves a Sauvignon Blanc that's a bit unique. Firstly, grapes are left on the vine a little longer, picked by hand and pressed at cooler temperatures for a different kind of flavour. A long cool vinification retains the crispness of Sauvignon Blanc on the vine, a course of regular lees stirring adds aromatics and infuses gentle creaminess.
Bright, light lime/ straw colour. Aromas of lime blossom, white peaches and spring flower. The flavours are clear and crisp, a lovely creamy texture, especially on the mid palate. Fresh, dry and so refined, completely ideal as an aperitif, day or night with canape of salmon, seafood ceviche or antipasto. Enjoy at any time and match with or without food.
