Sauvignon Blanc Fumé

Moonambel, Pyrenees

" Quite a stunner! "

Hand picked, fermented with indigenous yeast in seasoned and new French oak. In Australian sauvignon terms, this is the next level. The winemaker seeks to bring added complexity, mouthfeel, savouriness and intensity – a touch of seriousness – to the grape variety. The flavour profile changes to lemongrass, herbs, preserved lemon and grilled grapefruit with a waxy texture. Quite a stunner. 93 Points

Notes

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 great length, texture and zing. John Harris – Winemaker

  • Peerick Vineyard, Moonambel

  • 12.8 %

Some fairly funky aromas of feijoa, lime leaf, grapefruit pith and brambles. Plenty of layers of flavour, citrus, herbs and an element of oak adds detail and complexity. There's a roundness and richness to the palate and the acidity is bright and gives the wine some lovely cut and drive.
