In recognition of passion for fine wine, the Giesen brothers named
this wine after their grandfather August (pronounced ow-goost),
a restaurateur and sommelier. While retaining a base of varietal
sauvignon blanc character, this blend is a richer expression.
Concentrated aroma and complexity is derived from a combination
of low yielding vines, barrel fermentation with wild yeast and
extended maturation on lees. The palate has a purity of flavour and
structure achieved by whole bunch pressing which enhances the
flavour profile and retains a lovely acidity. To this, extra textural and
secondary flavour and length are added by extended time on yeast
lees and the use of seasoned French oak barrels.
