The Supernatural Sauvignon Blanc 2017
$30.00 inc. GST
90/100 – James Suckling
“Mealy, lightly grassy, savory aromas lead to a mellow, smoothly textured palate that offers lemon-barley flavor in restrained, elegant mode. Drink now. Crown cap.” – James Suckling
Tasting Note: Smoky and spicy notes are characteristic of the site, along with richness and texture we encourage with skin and lees contact. The 2017 wine has intense lime and spicy jalepeño notes on the nose with an underlying minerality. It is rich and full in the mouth with a gorgeous texture – fresh limes, ripe stone fruit and a hint of spice on the palate pair beautifully with a long fine acidity to 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.
