2021 10X Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc

2021 10X Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc

2021 10X Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc

A barrel fermented wine that demonstrates the diversity of this variety. While the nose has lifted notes of lavender, cut grass and snow pea, the combination of time in older oak during fermentation and some bâtonnage means the mouthfeel and palate is distinctly savoury however balanced with hints of lime, lychee and chamomile, offering great drive with a lingering finish.

Other Notes
Moderate temperatures throughout a wet spring and throughout flowering resulted in healthy canopies with slightly lower than average yields. Above average rainfall over the Summer due to La Niña was moderated by dry spells and moderate temperatures resulted in slower ripening. High levels of acidity were retained together with great concentration of flavour and fine detail.
