Muse Sauvignon 2013

Drinking Guide

 

Drink 2013-2021

The 2013 Muse Sauvignon is a single vineyard artisanal wine which will cellar well. Grapes are hand-picked on three separate occasions to harness lively acidity, a complexity of aromas and flavours and ripe tannins. Two thirds are then fermented wild, after extended skin contact, in oak and matured in 1500 litre French oak foudres. Apple blossoms, lemongrass, wild yeast, minerals and cedar inhabit the bouquet. There are apples, cool mint, gun flint, funk and lees on the palate which is medium bodied and long. Drink 2014-2021 with goat’s cheese, fresh tomatoes and herbs.

Vintage Description
Technical Details

As with previous releases, as this wine was made to sit somewhere in-between a typical Sauvignon blanc and a Fumé blanc it is simply called Sauvignon. Much effort was placed into making a wine that was interesting, funky and complex while remaining approachable. The wine is a blend of numerous batches of stainless steel fermented and barrel fermented wines. All fruit used in this wine was sourced from Moorilla owned St Matthias vineyard (West Bank, Tamar River).
