Simple winemaking and attention to detail is what’s needed to make great Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit was gently pressed, the juice cool settled and racked clear for fermentation in tank. An extended period on yeast lees in tank has increased the richness and texture.
A dry and warm summer with cool nights has produced a wine with pungent aromatics and crisp acidity. Gooseberry, lime and guava aromas lead into a rich, mouth-filling palate that tastes of passionfruit, grapefruit and a lovely chalkiness. The wine is crisp and bright with a lingering finish…oh that’s Sauvie to a tee!
