Cracka Review

The thing we like about savvy is it's crisp and crunchy styling, and this one encompasses everything we love. From its tropical fruits and chopped herbs, through to its juicy flavours, lip-smacking acidity, and refreshing finish, it is a 'go to' wine for a warm day, especially with the Sunday fish and chips on the beach.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2013 season produced lower yields with a cool ripening period. The use of the Stelvin closure ensures that the complex but clean characteristics of this wine are retained and are free of any cork related off odours.

A perfect balance of strong tropical notes mixed with some grassiness leaves well balanced crisp fruit and acidity. Enjoy this wine while it’s young and fresh; a wine that will reward you… Sabbatical!

Appearance: Very pale straw colour.

Nose: Lifted tropical fruit aromas with a touch of passionfruit and grassiness.

Palate: Strong tropical notes and rich flavours but finishing with a crisp balanced acidity.

Cellaring: Drinking now!

Alcohol: 12.5%
