Swiftburn Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Opens with an enticingly fresh bouquet of ripe citrus, passionfruit and aromatic herbs, the palate has excellent fruit weight and drive with punchy flavours of gooseberry, passionfruit and a squeeze of lemon.
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.
