Description

An exotic style of Sauvignon Blanc incorporating wild barrel ferment, with no additions, stabilising, fining or filtration. Cloudy and moreish, racy and ripe.

Fruit sourced from the western Wallcliffe sub-region was fermented wild in one-year French oak barriques and a puncheon; aged on lees, gently stirred for eight months. This wine has a bright golden colour and appears cloudy (deliberately) from the minimal settling and zero fining/filtration.

Dusty straw and smokebush greet on the nose, some coriander root, kaffir lime, and a touch of musky-scented perfume. In the fruit spectrum you’ll find nutty peach, kiwi-fruit/lychee, pear and fresh pineapple. A hint of vanillan French Oak adds some lift. A creamy mouthfeel, yet juicy and complex, leads off with melon and fig, white peach/nectarine, and finishes with zesty lemon/lime – all softened by the gentle warm oak.

This wine should be enjoyed with minimal chilling only. Do not over-chill. Harmless tartrates may form in the bottle over time.

Best lightly chilled – with antipasti, roasted vegies or creamy pasta and risotto.
