Signature Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Pristine and fragrant, this immediately appealing sauvignon is filled with white nectarine, lime zest, feijoa and dill characters. The palate is juicy and focused, and shows excellent fruit intensity, backed by bright acidity. The wine is lingering and very tasty. At its best: now to 2018.

Ella Maria Sauvignon Blanc 2014​

​This is gorgeously complex and fragrant on the nose displaying grapefruit, peach, flint, dried herb and almond aromas, leading to a powerfully expressed palate that is intense and generous with finely textured mouthfeel. The wine is brilliantly structured by racy acidity, finishing beautifully long and attractive. 100% barrel fermented in three-year-old French oak, then matured for nine months. At its best: now 2020. 

Signature Chardonnay 2014​

Signature Pinot Noir 2014​

At its best: now to 2017.
