Sauvignon Blanc is one of the dominant grape varieties in Tasmania, giving amazingly energetic wines. The nose on this is all exotic, complemented by some dill and sea salt. Lightning strikes on the palate! You can taste the vitality, but it’s so well blended with the fruit that you forget it’s there. Until you come to your next sip (or bottle).
Nav Singh is the man behind Domaine Simha – simple philosophy, unmatched experience. In his winemaking, he uses low to no additives, ferments in amphora and experiments with whole bunch fermentation and amphora ageing. Fruit is sourced from Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley. Some of the best sommeliers of Australia consider Nav’s wines as an equivalent to premium Burgundies that they have been pouring for years. Strong words backed up by stellar quality.
