Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Our 2017 Sauvignon Blanc shows a full spectrum of the primary fruit varietal characteristics of Albany’s Cool Maritime Climate.

This is a reflection of the rain free and moderate temperatures in 2017 which has led to an outstanding vintage in the Great Southern for fresh varietal whites. Cool ferments have retained the natural freshness and crispness of the fruit. The lees were stirred weekly (Batonnage) to gain mid weight complexity once in bottle.

Our Sauvignon Blanc shows intense overtones of passionfruit and light tropical fruits such as pineapple and banana, with an underlying cool climate varietal herbacousness, derived from aromas of nettles, snow peas and fresh gooseberries.
