Three Card Monte


2017 ‘Three Card Monte’ Sauvignon Blanc

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Note
Vibrant and creamy the Three Card Monte has aromas of kaffir lime leaves, cut grass, minted pea and orange blossum. The palate is mouthfilling and creamy from time in oak with vibrant citrus and herbal flavours dominating. Long lasting and moreish finish.

50% of the grapes were fermented on skins for three days with a cultured yeast and the other 50% fermented on skins for seven days with wild yeast. It was then racked to French oak, 25% new, for 11 months.


Food Match
Try the Three Card Monte with steamed snapper accompanied with soy sauce, ginger, sesame and coriander.

95 Points / James Halliday / Halliday Wine Companion 2019

Machine-harvested, 7 days on skins, free-run juice wild-fermented and matured in oak (20% new) for 12 months. The full-on approach might have been a disaster, but was in fact a triumph. While creating layered complexity, it is long and fresh, with vibrant mouthfeel, and lemon curd, citrus and integrated, faintly toasty oak.
