Tasting Notes

The Praxis Sauvignon demands to be appreciated young and fresh, these grapes were sourced from the reliable St. Matthias Vineyard on the West Tamar in Northern Tasmania. Picked at varying degrees of ripeness over the course of 7 days, this provides layers of complexity not usually found in cool Sauvignon Blanc. Think Lemon Verbena, cranberry, and thyme.

Enjoy Me With 

Whilst this is where we usually write a food pairing, in this instance we had a really long day at work so drank it without any food. Oops. Ok on a serious note this wine works well with fresh seafood, sashimi, fresh Tasmanian Lease 65 oysters and of course fresh herb focussed salads.

 

About 

Founded in 1947 and originally by an Italian Textile Merchant Claudio Alcorso, in 1995 David Walsh acquired the sites and established Moorilla Wines in his own vision. Chief winemaker Connor van der Reest has taken lead from MONA and has driven diversity, complexity and the unexpected in his wines. Production is limited and the quality of these cool climate wines is evident in every wine produced. The portfolio is diverse and interesting with usual varietal suspects playing a role with highlights of Chardonnay Musque and interesting field blends for the cloth label.
