The Cupitt family has been producing wines from their vineyards situated in the hills behind Milton on the pristine NSW south coast since 2007.
Grown in well-drained sandstone and clay soils, these Sauvignon vines produce a unique expression of the variety.
The afternoon sea breeze during ripening gives this wine a cool climate quality. Hand-picked and whole bunch-pressed, wild yeast fermented and matured on lees for 7 months with a portion in French oak.
The bouquet has lifted floral characters with the palate having a lovely combination of citrus, lemon zest and spice leading to a lingering refreshing finish.
“This strives for the light over the dark. Aspirational in the best sense: nettle, asparagus, greengage, lemon zest and most things herbal over tropical. OK, a whiff of guava. Oak, a textural adjunct. All the better for it. This should cuvee should be very good in the future. Texture, the calling card.” Halliday Wine Companion 2021
