BARREL FERMENTED SAUVIGNON BLANC 2019

SOUND OF WHITE

BARREL FERMENTED SAUVIGNON BLANC 2019

Our gentle approach to winemaking brings a different expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine shows reserved aromas of ripe citrus peel, stonefruit, lanolin and flint. The mid-palate is finely textured with mouthwatering acidity supporting the wine to give it definition, length and flavour.

Winemaking is intended to be mimimal for these wines. Handpicked fruit was gently whole bunch pressed to tank (briefly), before being run to large 4000L French oak fouondtres and a handful of 500L puncheons for an uninoculated fermentation. The wine was then left unsulphured on heavy lees for 10 months before blending and bottling. A portion underwent malolactic fermentation for added complexity and texture.

Vintage

The 2018/2019 growing season wrapped up with exceptionally clean fruit and low yields that developed excellent concentration and flavour. January through March was hot and dry with little rainfall and combined with the low yields, meant harvest started earlier than usual. It also allowed picking decisions to be made in the vineyard on flavour and reaching optimum ripeness.
