An exotic style of Sauvignon Blanc incorporating wild barrel ferment, with no additions, stabilising, fining or filtration. Cloudy and moreish, racy and ripe. A creamy mouthfeel, yet juicy and complex.
Best lightly chilled – with antipasti, roasted vegies or creamy pasta and risotto.
We missed a couple of years, but its back amongst the ‘mantra’ classics. A new vineyard source for this one – a cooler site, to help retain the acidity yet achieving richness through extended ripening.
Pressed immediately after the pick and straight into Frenck oak for a wild and long fermentation. Kept on lees 7 months until bottling in October, unfined, unfiltered.
Opens with pineapple richness and some fragrant mountain herbs. Apricot and white peach aromas filter through, some jasmine flower, some nettles.
Picking out the bassier notes of SB and running hard with them. The texture is creamy and rich, resplendent with sweet pineapple, hints of passionfruit and kiwifruit. Gooseberry, fire & spice, sweet lemon curd. The richness is offset by some taut acidity and a long finish that leaves you wanting more.
