About the Wine
This white wine is made by Bay of Fires in Tasmania. Deliciously zesty and zippy, makes fish and seafood dishes shine. Formed from primarily Sauvignon Blanc grapes. You shouldn't find this wine anywhere else, it is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by Accolade Wines.
Sauvignon has boomed in recent years. Its crisp acidity makes it a popular choice as an aperitif or with food. It's an aromatic variety, enjoyed when young, and mostly un-oaked. Produced in a variety of methods in the Old and New World resulting in a light and minerally style to more tropical flavours.

The winery, established in the 1990s to produce cool climate Tasmanian wines and to identify outstanding cool climate vineyard sites and plant the variety that harmonises with the vineyard to express the personality of the site. All fruit, sourced from vineyards around the east of the island, is vinified separately before blending, allowing for each vineyard’s essence and character to be expressed and shine through.
Australia is at the start of an exciting wine journey. Having been a successful wine growing country with their classic punchy style, we are now seeing more experimentation and diversity, and it's for the better.Explore Australia
