2023 Sauvignon Blanc

$22.90

WINEMAKING NOTES

The fruit for this wine was grown on the lower terraces of Askerne Vineyard. The majority of the blend was cool fermented in stainless steel tanks with a range of different aromatic yeast stains to bring out the wonderful vibrancy of this variety. The balance was a barrel ferment component (40%), to add richness and complexity to the wine (seasoned oak only, no new).  The blend also contains 8% Sauvignon Gris to give an extra citrus lift to the aromatics.  After blending, this wine was left on light lees to further add complexity and texture to the palate.

TASTING NOTES

Bright and vibrant with lemon, grapefruit and guava notes, delicate white blossom florals and a touch of honied sweetness.  Textural with juicy salinity and concentrated guava and tangerine flavours, the palate has wonderful length and a salivating finish.
