This Sauvignon blanc has been made with only the “free run” juice – the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness and phenolics associated with the grape skin. The juice was fermented in French oak 500 litre puncheons with some grape solids giving the wine a complex savoury note.
2016 Apricus Hill Sauvignon Blanc
A brilliant, clear steely white with youthful green hues.
A vibrant lifted nose of gooseberry and citrus with grassy, savoury notes and hints of gunflint and toasty French oak
Grapefruit and passionfruit combine with a textured savoury mid palate with hints of melon and spicy vanillin oak leading to a long crisp finish
This wine will improve with up to 5 years careful cellaring. The use of screw cap technology is critical to the longevity of this wine.
