COLOUR: Light straw.
NOSE: Fresh fruity aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry and guava.
PALATE: A light-bodied palate showing bright, juicy, tropical flavours, finishing fresh, clean and crisp with lingering fruit.
A wet winter was followed by a windy, cooler and wetter than average spring. Along with cool nights in early summer, this markedly slowed ripening and delayed harvest by about 4 weeks. Hot weather in mid February and early March progressed ripening, after which nights were cool through to end of harvest. Overall wine quality was good, with bright fruit freshness.
Matured in stainless steel to retain its fresh fruit focus.
Bilyara Sauvignon Blanc is great with crumbed calamari with tartare sauce, or creamy chicken and leek pie.
Best enjoyed while young and fresh.
