I’m not really a Sav Blanc fan but I do like it is has drive and restraint. This wine sees no oak treatment but does have 4 months on lees which add palate weight and a creamy mouth-feel. The grape for this wine were harvested on the 4th of April and then inoculated with yeast before fermentation in stainless steal tanks and then bottled in late August.

The pureness of this wine is really interesting as it comes in the form of bright snowpeas, passion fruit, dried flowers and lemon grass. The mid-palate is rich but the lemon grass pulls it back in to line at the end. In terms of Sav Blanc it ticks a lot of boxes as it is familiar in style to many but has enough points of difference to take it too the next level.
