With the ever-increasing globalisation of the wine industry, we, like you, could be forgiven for thinking we were all just pawns in the big wine company game. The release of the Pawn is a manifestation of our resolve to amend this situation by releasing wines hand crafted from small parcels of premium fruit from our Adelaide Hills Vineyards.

This Fumé Blanc style has the wine fermenting in stainless steel and a small proportion of French Oak to develop its zesty flavours with a subtle grassy note that is complemented by a lingering finish of grapefruits and guava.

Its tightly woven acidity gives this wine a crisp freshness and a subtle oak character that adds great complexity and depth. A great wine to bridge the great divide between those who like the fresh zippy
styles and those who prefer something with more complexity.

Additional Information
Chess trivia

Jeu de fin – or end game, may occur gradually or with
the quick exchange of a few pairs of pieces.
In end game strategies the Pawns become more important; with the
game often revolving around attempting to promote a Pawn by
advancing it to the eighth rank.

Goes best with

Blue fin Tuna Sashimi, pickled spring vegetables and
a picnic rug on the lawn

Cellaring Trivia

This wine is enjoyable now as a beautiful summer
drink, but with its broader texture and palate weight, it has the structure
to flower into a classic over the next 4 to 6 years.
