Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Golden pale silica in colour. Brined jalapenos and sweet white blossom compete for initial impression on the nose. A core of yellow fleshed fruit lays beneath zesty citrus, sweet herbs and Japanese inspired savouriness. When tasted the wine seems to become even more grounded with green tobacco and bramble. A juicy, saline entry leads to a dry and textured gravel dust finish that is incredibly persistent.
Riverbone is gravel-borne. There are two sections of soil in our vineyard where the boulders are formidable, the pebbles are pure and the columns of sands bottomless. The naturally high vigour of Sauvignon blanc is dragged beneath the earth as the roots drive deep and wide searching of sustenance. What results is a small balanced vine that produces fruit that is more austere, grounded and complex. When converting the fruit into wine we try to accentuate these characters with subtle oak, natural yeast and long maturation time both in barrel and bottle."
