2016 Apricus Hill Sauvignon Blanc

6 bottles

In stock.

This Sauvignon blanc has been made with only the “free run” juice – the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness and phenolics associated with the grape skin. The juice was fermented in French oak 500 litre puncheons with some grape solids giving the wine a complex savoury note. A brilliant, clear steely white with youthful green hues. Grapefruit and passionfruit combine with a textured savoury mid palate with hints of melon and spicy vanillin oak leading to a long crisp finish. A vibrant lifted nose of gooseberry and citrus with grassy, savoury notes and hints of gunflint and toasty French oak. This wine will improve with up to 5 years careful cellaring.

94 points - Halliday Wine Companion (James Halliday)

Fermented and matured in French puncheons for 6 months (some solids). The barrel fermentation comes through on the bouquet, the palate focusing on the predominantly citrus and cut grass flavours that rapidly build intensity on the finish and aftertaste, tropical fruits dispatched to field on the boundary. Interesting wine.
