Gemtree Moonstone Savagnin 2015
- Certified Organic

Clear and bright in colour with a pale straw with a light green hue. The nose shows citrus and lemon zest aromas with fragrant white Jasmine flower, green pear and chalkiness in the background. Very fresh and zesty. The palate is fresh and lively with the zesty characteristics continuing through from the nose, and flavours of lemon curd and nashi pear are also evident.
Clean and light-weight with good natural acid, this is a fantastic easy drinking style, perfect for enjoying on the deck with seafood!
SURPRISE! Your Albarino is Savagnin
Some say, “out of adversity comes opportunity”… this sums up our Moonstone Savagnin perfectly. One hundred per cent biodynamic, we originally planted this variety, ‘Savagnin’, under the assumption that it was the famous Spanish dry white ‘Albarino’. You can understand our heartache and disappointment when it was discovered that apparently the powers that be that control these things got it wrong big time, and the variety was actually a little known variety from France known as ‘Savagnin’.
This same ‘mix up’ happened to a number of wineries dotted throughout the Vale but we have rolled with it and concentrated on producing a simple, easy-drinking aromatic white wine, uncomplicated, fermented naturally and put into bottle. Definitely a perfect summer aperitif and a nice alternative to that other ‘Savvy’.
Biodynamic with the emphasis on ‘dynamic’. This is an intelligent alternative to that other ‘Savvy’.
