Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Mt. Beautiful

Terroir: The majority of the Sauvignon Blanc is planted on the most northern part of the vineyard which is cooler and more suited to this variety. All our Sauvignon Blanc is hand-thinned where required, machine harvested and processed at the Mt Beautiful winery on site.

Vinification: The majority of the wine was fermented cool with a long slow fermentation to retain fruit aroma. The tank fermented wines were racked off gross lees approximately 10-20 days post fermentation while 5% of the wine was fermented in old barrels and left on lees for 2 months to provide texture. The Black Label was blended in June and bottled in early August.

Additional Information

Tasting Notes: It has an enticing medley of tropical, passionfruit, cut grass, tomato leaf and blackcurrant aromas on the nose and palate. This, along with a beautifully creamy mid palate and an elegant acidity provides a wine with plenty of intrigue. Dry, with a long persistent finish, this Sauvignon Blanc is ideal for any occasion.
