QTY

This wine has been made to sit in-between a typical Sauvignon blanc and a Fumé blanc. Funky, approachable, complex and elegant, it is simply called Sauvignon. Beautifully balanced and retrained, the floral, passion fruit and herbaceous aromas are lifted by subtle oak and wild yeast. This is highlighted on the palate with its crisp acidity, round mouth feel and a touch of vanilla bean. Matches well with food now or later.

Vintage Description
Technical Details

This wine has been made to sit somewhere in-between a typical Sauvignon Blanc and a Fume Blanc. 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 wild barrel fermented wines that achieves what we set out to do, hence why it is simply called Sauvignon. All fruit used in this wine is Tasmanian. The fruit was sourced from Moorilla owned St Matthias vineyard (West Bank, Tamar River) and the adjacent Moorilla managed Martins block. Both parcels this year cropped at an average yield. The fruit was left on the vine until flavour profiles showed a decrease in vegetal and herbaceous characters and balance was achieved with fruity and floral characters. It was then hand-picked as individual parcels as each of our blocks is a different clone.
