Medhurst Sauvignon Blanc 2016
A focused and textural Sauvignon Blanc with line and length and a clean refreshing finish.
"The wines of 2016 show great purity, tension and charm. For our Sauvignon Blanc, we whole bunch pressed the fruit and allowed the juice to settle overnight. After racking, 30% was put to new French puncheons and the rest to stainless steel tank. Indigenous fermentation took place with the barrel portion of the wine spending 3 months in new oak before being transferred to stainless steel. As a blend in tank, the wine spent a further 6 months on full lees to build texture via yeast autolysis and to help retain the freshness seen in the grapes at harvest. Very pale straw green; almost translucent. Fresh and lively aromas of grapefruit rind, nettles, guava and honeysuckle with complexing hints of toast and flint from barrel fermentation. There is some mid-palate creaminess and refreshing chalky acidity. This wine will suit extended bottle ageing. If you can't (or won't) wait, then grab a fresh goat's curd salad with rocket and fennel or perhaps a pasta with fresh peas, dill and smoked salmon tossed through it." Medhurst Wines
