2018 Sauvignon Blanc
|Vintage Description: |
2018 will rate as one of the best seasons for grape growers in the Mt Barker and indeed, the Great Southern. It was an extremely ‘kind’ season with no weather extremes, no disease risk and consistently fine weather; all the fruit achieved optimal ripeness and flavour development without losing its natural acidity. As a result, we have whites that are fully ripe but with slightly higher acidities. All this Sauvignon Blanc is from our Langton vineyard, right beside the winery (= zero fruit miles!).
|Fruit Source:||Mount Barker|
|Colour:||Super bright and clear with the tiniest hint of green/gold.|
|Aroma:||Lovely fresh, ripe, Sauvignon characters of passionfruit and green melon, with just a hint of herbaceousness.|
|Palate:||The palate is deliciously fresh and zesty with loads of citrusy flavours and a zingy acidity. Gorgeous fruit flavours of gooseberries and ‘greengage’ plums. Our 2018 SB is well flavoured but fresh and tight as the acidity gives the wine its good structure and length.|
|Cellar Potential:||Superb drinking now, especially as an aperitif and will continue to drink well over the next 12+ mon|
