Winemaker's Notes

Winemaking Notes: Several batches of fruit picked at varying ripeness / flavour levels. 6 hours skin contact time with fruit being held cold in press taking free run & pressings fractions. Fining additions & clarification of juice parcels by N2 flotation. Inoculated ferments with thiol enhancing yeast, cool temperature controlled 100% stainless steel ferment. Post ferment some light yeast lees stirring in tank. Rack off lees & commence clarification & stabilisation. Cross flow filtration.

Colour: Pale straw with a youthful hue.

Nose: Aromas of grapefruit, citrus and melon with attractive herbaceous characters.

Palate: Bright, fresh and zesty with balanced acidity across flavours of tropical fruits, highlighted by mouth filling texture and length.

Alc/vol: 12.5%

2016 Allegiance Artisan Orange Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Sam Kim (2016 Vintage) says
Pristine and fragrant, the inviting bouquet shows grapefruit, red apple, rockmelon and sweet basil aromas, leading to a juicy palate that is lively and generously flavoured. The wine offers lovely fruit purity and vibrancy, brilliantly structured by crisp acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering.
Drink by 2019
Tony Keys (2016 Vintage) says
Some incredible SB coming out of Orange, again this it streamline the taste appears after the wine has passed a point but then lingers, very smart wine that should continue to develop in 2017.
