Silver Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Silver Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Initially stylized after traditional Sancerre, a subtle hint of green grass on the nose leads into white peach, melon rind and dry lychee aromas. Vibrant acidity frames a palate of light guava and pomelo laced with grapefruit, honeysuckle and crème brûlée flavours. Its hallmark acidity is supported by a touch of flinty minerality continuing from the palate through the finish. Cellar time in the bottle will unveil further complementary tropical fruit aromas and flavours.

Brilliant upon release though it will develop nicely through 2023 under ideal cellaring conditions.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of grapes picked at different times to yield a complexity of flavours and acidity. Different leaf removal strategies were employed to give a variety of bunch exposure times and subsequent flavour development. Crop levels were kept low at 3 tons per acre.
Production Notes
The fruit is hand harvested and allowed to cool overnight. Flavours ripened quite early enabling us to pick at lower sugar levels, thus crafting a lower alcohol wine. Grapes are de-stemmed and cold soaked for 12-16 hours and then pressed. Free and press run juices are kept separate. To create heightened complexity in aromatic esters, fermentation is long and cool, done in stainless steel tanks, with 20% fermented in neutral oak puncheons. We also apply a variety of yeasts specific for promoting our desired aroma and flavour components.
Winemaker Notes
A small percentage of Sémillon (3%) has been blended in. The resulting blend is maintained on light lees for 4 months prior to fining, filtration and bottling.
