Balance, structure, and texture are at the core of the Estate Blanc. This foundation makes it quite versatile at the dinner table. From raw seafood to hearty pork dishes, the combination of rich fruit and bright acidity makes it a perfect match.

Though easy to enjoy, our Estate Blanc is more intellectual than it is
quaffable. Whereas most Sauvignon Blanc blends are meant to be enjoyed for the prelude to an evening, this has the integrity to last from amuse-bouche to the final dessert of a lengthy meal.

This is a delicious and beautifully structured Sauvignon Blanc with 6% Sémillon from 2020 by winemaker Sam Kaplan. It’s fresh and inviting with aromatic citrus and nutty aromas leading to a medium-bodied white wine with a beautiful mid-palate weight and depth of candied citrus flavours framed by zesty acidity and jasmine florals tinged with honeysuckle. It’s all too easy to drink and strikes a perfect balance of creaminess from 11 months sur-lie in concrete egg and portions aged in new and used French oak. Aged fully 18 months in the bottle before release.
