Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc shows a full intense spectrum of the primary fruit varietal characteristics of Albany’s Cool Maritime Climate in a unique year.

This is a reflection of the driest summer on record, and moderately cool temperatures over 2019 which has led to an outstanding vintage in the Great Southern, for fresh varietal whites and complex full reds.

Cool ferments have retained the natural freshness and crispness of the fruit. The lees were stirred weekly (Batonnage) to gain mid weight complexity once it is in bottle.

Our Sauvignon Blanc shows intense overtones of feijoa, some tropical characters and citrus blossom on the nose, with an underlying cool climate varietal herbacousness, derived from aromas of nettles. The palate enjoys snow peas, quince and complex mid palate softness, followed on by refreshing cleansing acid, a complicated wine!
