This wine exhibits subtle aromas of gooseberry, chamomile and grapefruit in spades. It has charming grassy and mineral characteristics, finishing with an acidity reminiscent of Meyer lemon. It is a delicious accompaniment to fresh oysters, Crottin de Chavignol, fresh chèvre, shellfish, and salads featuring asparagus, fennel, and grapefruit.
Gill Family Vineyard, Oliver
After hand-sorting to ensure only quality fruit went into the wine, the grapes were crushed & de-stemmed. Half of the juice went straight into the press and the other half soaked on the skins overnight, gently extracting flavour, enhancing aroma, and adding texture. After primary fermentation in stainless steel, the juice was transferred to neutral barrels for 2 months of fine lees contact to further develop complexity.

Dale Nigel Goble created JoieFarm’s labels and graphics for 19 years. His ‘look and feel’ has permeated the spirit of JoieFarm for two decades strong. His artwork for our Sauvignon Blanc serves to signify it as a unique, small-lot bottling within our portfolio, whilst evoking a true sense of the Art of Good Living as it relates to the context in which this wine might be enjoyed: alongside an abundance of freshly shucked oysters. While our JoieFarm family was devastated to lose Dale several years back, his memory and spirit live on in his work as we continue to appreciate his artistic contributions to our overall culture.
