Sauvignon Blanc (63%)
Margaret River, Australia
Brilliant, pale straw with green tinge.
The bouquet displays bright fruit, passionfruit and thyme aromas with hints of frangipani and subtle, intriguing funky characters in the background.
The lively palate is medium bodied with wonderful clarity offering citrus, crunchy tropical fruits, spice and dried herbs. A beautifully structured wine, layered with savoury textural elements yet with a crystalline backbone of quartz and zesty acidity. The influence of barrel fermentation has added complexity to this otherwise quintessentially crisp, fruit driven blend.
The Sauvignon Blanc component was whole bunch pressed with the cloudy free-run juice then naturally fermented in French oak using ‘wild’ yeasts. A small component of Muscadelle was fermented naturally in new French oak adding perfume to the wine. Semillon was crushed and the free run juice fermented in tank at 150C using an aromatic yeast strain.. All of the barrels (new barriques were used for 10% of the blend) were lees stirred for several months adding complexity and texture to the wine before blending with crisp clean tank fermented component.
