VINIFICATION

Picked on the 8th of February, settled on juice lees for 3 days before being racked to 2 and 3 year old French barriques for 6 months with some early lees stirring to build texture.

 

TASTING NOTES

Crafted to our very specific style, this Sauvignon Blanc spent some time in oak and also saw some bâtonnage. This tamed the overt fruity characters of the variety into a more savoury and textural style. The 2020 vintage arrived on time and brought with it the characteristic bright and fragrant, tropical bouquet (Guava, Paw Paw and Rockmelon). The palate is fresh and mouth-watering, but the barrel fermentation provides a richness to the palate. Crisp acidity ensures focus, structure and length making it perfect with food or without. Cellaring Potential: Enjoy now or up to 5 years Serving Temperature: 7-10°C Food Pairing: Fresh goats cheese, crunchy salads, and King George Whiting.
