Fermented and aged in French oak
Wild yeast fermented and matured in French oak hogsheads on full juice solids. The ripe grapefruit and passionfruit characteristics from the vineyard, with wild ferment struck-match, and Fumé-style reductive complexity, delivers a Sauvignon Blanc with complexity, length, texture and zing.
Peerick Vineyard, Moonambel
It’s very much a fumé style, with a twist of passionfruit before the savoury, background winemaking influences tone down the fruit and adding a little meringue and vanilla for good measure. Dry, cool and sophisticated, this balances ripeness and fruit expertly. More Loire or Bordeaux Blanc than anything, and has a very stark freshness that is quite appealing. I’m a fan.
