Flowstone Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Sauvignon Blanc is probably the world's most popular white wine, especially in its brightly fruity expression. The Flowstone Sauvignon Blanc harks back to a more palate focussed wine, free of the nervy pressures of immediacy, and allowing the variety to express itself in a more textural manner. The inspirations behind this wine are more from the old home of Sauvignon Blanc than the new.
The Wine Front – Oak-matured sauvignon blanc from the cool south of Margaret River. 420 dozen produced. It’s not a simple wine. There’s some funk, some smoke, some gravel – before the pour of ripe, intense fruit rolls through. It’s a concentrated wine, and complex, and classy, with ample texture and length to seal the deal.
James Halliday – Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, fermented in used oak and demi-muids with staves, matured for 11 months in oak, plus 15 months in bottle. The complex, vaguely smoky/charry bouquet shifts around radically on the super-intense and complex palate, with citrus and snow pea doing battle with ripe citrus and guava/lychee tropical fruits, the latter prevailing.
