2018 Jessica Sauvignon
Pale straw with a green tinge
Lifted bouquet of green tropical fruits and citrus with subtle nutty aromas derived from barrel fermentation.
Abundant guava and pink grapefruit, vanilla and a mineral edge, with oak adding texture to the mid palate. Citrussy acidity adding precision, focus and length.
Sauvignon Blanc was crushed and run to barrel and inoculated with yeast, fermentation then took place over 10 days. The yeast lees were stirred regularly over the next 8 months while maturing in French oak barriques (15% new), prior to bottling in December 2018.
Enjoy now, or cellar for the next 4 years, to gain mid palate weight and complexity.
