2016 Blind Corner Governo

2016 Blind Corner Governo

Not your ordinary Sauvignon Blanc...

This wine is from a single block of Sauvignon Blanc at the top of the hill.  Hungry soils and dry-growing ensure the grapes to crop very low

A portion of the grapes were hand-picked and air-dried prior to the picking of the balance of the fruit.  It is wild fermented on skins and then basket pressed to top the wine from the remainder of the block

The remaining grapes are basket pressed and wild-fermented in old french oak.  The wines were combined and lees stirred occasionally for 7 months prior to bottling.

The resultant wine is different from most Sauvignon Blanc, and shows characters of blackcurrant flower, mandarin and Moroccan spice.  The palate is textural and rich with a tight finish.

Ingredients: Grapes, Sulphites
Residual Sugar: <1g/L
