2022 Deep Down Sauvignon Blanc
Winemaker Clive Dougall wanted to turn the volume down on the classic fruit driven style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and he’s done that using organically certified grapes as his starting point, which he fermented with wild yeasts with 35% of the fermentation in old puncheons. Malolactic fermentation followed in barrel with lees stirring and the result is a fresh, soft, floral scented Sauvignon with the floral, elderflower and citrus flavours supported by a backbone of fresh acidity.
Nose: Tropical fruits on the nose, passionfruit, grapefruit and peach.
Palate: The palate gives a lot of citrus, dry with acidity.
Pairings: Would be perfect with shellfish, vegetables or cheese.
Bottle RRP: $40.00
