David Finlayson Sauvignon Blanc 2021

David Finlayson Sauvignon Blanc 2021
David Finlayson Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Green apple, flinty and tropical fruit flavours on the nose flow through onto the palate where crisp, clean acidity is met by a creamy midpalate. A softer and rounder version of Sauvignon Blanc than most modern day examples with more than a nod to the French style of the Loire.

Ageing
Cellar

All grapes were hand picked, pressed in a variety of methods including destemming-crushing and whole bunch and then fermented in batches in stainless steel tanks of 5000 litres.  Cold fermentation with a variety of different yeasts was followed by 2 months maturation on the lees. Regular stirring of the lees allowed a creamy texture to develop in the wine.

Harvest

February 2019. All grapes were handpicked.
