2015 Sauvignon Blanc
Our aim is to produce a well flavoured, crisp dry Sauvignon Blanc with the attractive fruit characters typical of the variety and designed for current drinking.
For the 2015 vintage, we sourced our Sauvignon Blanc grapes entirely from Mt Barker vineyards. We enjoyed a good wet spring followed by a warmish start to the summer so the vines were all in great shape. Moderate temperatures around picking time combined with cooler night temperatures meant the delicate fruit aromatics and natural acidity were retained. We harvested over a 10 day period to get a balance between the crisp herbaceous characters of the early picked fruit with the more tropical fruit flavours from the riper fruit. Only the free run juice was used and fermented at cool temperatures (~12 C) with a neutral yeast to maximise all the natural fruit flavours from the grapes.
Our 2015 is gorgeously aromatic with lifted passionfruit and floral characters and a delicate fresh herbaceousness.
This is a dry though delicately fruity wine; it has gorgeous, crisp, melon fruit flavours and good palate weight. The lemony, citrus overtones give this wine its good length of flavour and the clean acid finish means it can be enjoyed as an aperitif or served well chilled with just about anything. This Sauvignon Blanc is designed for current drinking so just keep until its cold enough and enjoy!
