Sauvignon Blanc | 2019

Pale straw in colour with tints of green. Aromas of fresh gooseberry, ripe fig, asparagus and crushed nettles. The palate has an opulent feel on entry, offset by a steely linearity and flavoursome, clean structure. The wine ends with great purity, definition and a moreish acidity.

The block gets harvested over a number of days, not all at once, as is usually the case. Why? Well, typically, grapes don’t all ripen at the same time, so we study each row.

The grapes were entirely hand-picked, between daybreak and mid-morning. Reductive winemaking methods were applied in making the wine.  The grapes were gently crushed, followed by four hours of skin contact. After a cool, 2 week fermentation the wine spent four months on the primary lees, with a twice a month batonage. The wine was stabilized and filtered pre-bottling.

Goats cheese – either baked, in a salad or on its own. Fish – whether it be baked, steamed, fried or served as a soup. Also, lime, coriander, light chilli and garlic when cooked with fish, chicken or vegetables.
