The Supernatural Sauvignon Blanc 2016:

Accolades:
5 stars – Michael Cooper

Tasting Note: Smoky and spicy notes are characteristic of the site, along with richness and texture we encourage with skin and lees contact. The 2016 wine has a beautiful mix of ripe tropical fruits and citrus on the nose with a hint of cream and lemon meringue. It is full and generous in the mouth with a lovely texture – lemon curd, apricot and ripe melon flavours pair with a long crisp citrus finish.

Winemaking Notes: Harvest is by Pellenc Selectiv Process with selective head harvester which ensures high quality of fruit while excluding all other materials. Six hours soaking on skins before gentle pressing. Settled overnight at 15°C before racking off heavy lees while maintaining contact with light lees. Fermented with indigenous yeast at cool temperatures. Extensive lees contact and stirring for six months. Prepared for bottling with a minimal sulphur addition. Unfined, lightly filtered.

Certification: Organic, Biodynamic

Alcohol: 13.0%

 

The Supernatural Green Glow Sauvignon Blanc 2015:

Accolades:
91+/100 – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
92/100 – James Suckling

Tasting Note: Golden yellow colour. Complex stone fruit aromas with hints of marmalade and smokiness on the nose. An opulent and creamy texture in the mouth. Peaches and nectarines combine with more complex flavours of spicy jalapeño and pithy grapefruit phenolics. A crisp, balanced acidity and a long finish with hints of creamy oyster and lemon zest.

Winemaking Notes: Grapes were hand-picked from the Eastern section of the vineyard, which due to lighter, less vigorous soils and more wind exposure produces smaller, riper berries and lower yields. De-stemmed without crushing, fermented at cool temperatures with indigenous yeast. Two weeks on skins, fermentation finished off skins to ensure minimal oxidation. Extensive lees contact over six months to develop the characteristic texture before being prepared for bottling. Unfined, unfiltered.

Certification: Organic, Biodynamic

Alcohol: 13.5%
