Cellaring

Ripe and fresh immediately but will develop even more softness and aromatic complexity with 1-3 years cellaring.

Tasting notes

The Ara Select Blocks Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant and intense, showing ripe, clean stone and grapefruit characters. It is very concentrated with a generous, textured mouth feel and a long clean finish.

Our favourite meals

Asparagus, Snow Pea & Scallop Salad.

This impressive salad from Annabelle Langbein makes a few scallops go a long way, but you can replace them with prawns or even crispy bacon.
