A fresh, approachable wine from the heart of the cool climate, pristine Adelaide Hills. The cepage is made up predominantly of fragrant, crisp Sauvignon Blanc balanced by the fine structure, citrus flavour and elegance of Semillon. An adaptable companion for any occasion, Tryst White will complement a range of dishes from fresh seafood to Thai or antipasto, experimentation is the key.
Nepenthe is described by Homer in The Odyssey as an Egyptian herbal drink so powerful that it eases grief and banishes sorrow from the mind. An exclusively Adelaide Hills wine, Tryst White once took gold at the prestigious International Wine Challenge, the only Australian Sauvignon Blanc to do so. Grapes are harvested in the cool hours after midnight and rapidly transported to the winery, crushed, chilled and pressed gently in an air bag press. The must is then allowed to settle before being racked off juice lees, warmed and inoculated with select dried wine yeast. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 12C to 18C. All tanks are assessed and blind tasted prior to assemblage. Approx 13.
Pale straw with a faint green tinge. A blend of aromas from both varietal grapes, the floral, tropical and herbaceous notes of Sauvignon Blanc are complemented by citrus and pineapple fruit flavours of Semillon. Fresh, lively and delicate with excellent poise and balance. Flavours of passionfruit, lemon sherbert and subtle grassiness are supported by lively acidity and firm texture.
