Swiftburn Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Our Central Otago grown Sauvignon Blanc is made to display classic Sauvignon herbaceousness, a touch of tropical fruit and a textural structure we only see in Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc. It is something a little different. The wine is full and textural in the mouth and has long lasting flavour. Handpicked and whole bunch pressed this is a small batch wine. Wild yeast fermentation, extended lees contact, and a small portion fermented in barrel gives the wine the texture and length we are looking for.
The wine has the classic pungent Sauvignon aromas of passion fruit and gooseberry, with ripe citrus and dried herbs in the background. On the palate the fresh fruit flavours burst forth and are complemented with savory notes of capsicum and herbs adding extra depth and complexity. The finish is long, mineral and flavoursome.
