2014 Sunset Chardonnay

Bright, deep yellow-straw in colour. The nose shows ripe stone fruits, lifted perfume of lime and orange blossom with hints of fruit spice and cashew. The clean, fresh palate is bursting with the flavours of sweet peach and pear.

2014 Sunset Sauvignon Blanc

Pale yellow-straw in colour. Typically varietal with notes of capsicum, passionfruit, lime and fresh green herbs. The palate is fresh and punchy from the intense fruit flavours, with a clean and mouth-watering finish of great length.
