2020 'A Forest' Sauvignon Blanc
Inspired by The Cure ‘A Forest’
Can you see the Sauvignon Blanc for the forest? With an abundance of commercial styles of Sauvignon Blanc on the market we set out with this wine to showcase a different side of the grape. We had access to some fruit from a new organic grower in Margaret River so 2020 ‘A Forest’ was born. When we received our very small batch of fruit we decided to leave on skins for just 24 hours as we wanted to ensure we kept the balance of freshness and brightness. Pressed off and racked straight into barrels with heavy solids where it patiently waited for the wild yeasts to take hold. Spent 6 months in older French barrels before bottling.
Fresh aromatics abound of lemon rind, mandarin & kiwifruit with hints of lemongrass and Jasmine flowers. This wine has a textured, elegant palate with apricots, shortbread, ripe pear and fruit tart. Juicy and zesty with a delightful mouthfeel.
