2017 The Long Road Sauvignon Blanc

$28.00

Spring was quite wet and mild, however fruit set wasn’t affected by the weather and was perfect. Summer was mild from December onwards. Picking occurred in March after a long, dry ripening season.

Tasting notes:

Intense passionfruit and lemon aromas and flavours. The palate is mineral and long with a perfect acid balance.

Winemaking:

Grapes were destemmed and pressed. Juice cold settled for 48 hours then racked from gross lees. The alcoholic fermentation occurred in stainless steel tank and barrel (5%) with a selected aromatic yeast. The wine was left on fine lees for 4 months before fining, stabilization, sterile filtration and bottling in September 2017.
