Auntsfield Sauvignon Blanc 2022 750ml New Release
100% Sauvignon Blanc. After long gentle pressing, the juice was settled for 24 hours before being racked and NTU adjusted. The juice was inoculated with yeast from Aunstfield vineyard. After two days of fermentation the wine was cooled and transferred to a combination of concrete and old French oak where it was left to ferment at warmer temperatures to help build texture and complexity. The wine was matured on fine lees for 16 months. This aging time allowed the wine to integrate and build concentration and depth of flavours before undergoing blending and bottling.
This Sauvignon is a unique expression of site and varietal. Its striking flavours are rich and complex. On the nose are citrus and stone fruits, white flowers, wet slate, oyster shell and spices.
The wine is textural and balanced, layered and complex. Pink grapefruit pith, nectarine and citrus flavours are wrapped around a great minerality. A backbone of mouth-watering acidity draws out the palate with an elegant finish.
