This Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of grapefruit and lime underpinned by a chalky mineral complexity. The palate is finely textured with gooseberry, zesty citrus and mineral flavours combined with a slight creaminess. A firm acidity helps to draw out the finish.
Organic/biodynamic practices in the three estate vineyards picked between 6th and 25th April, the grapes whole-bunch pressed, 80% fermented with wild yeast, 15% in aged French barriques and 5% semillon, all in all providing 29 separate blend components. Now draw breath. The wine is as complex and intense as one might expect, particularly on the aftertaste.
Drink to 2013.
Succinctly crisp, clean and refreshing, offering lime peel, gooseberry and grapefruit flavors,with a hint of fresh ginger on the finish. Powerful in its focus. Drink now.
