2021 WILD & WORKED SAUVIGNON BLANC SEMILLON

This classic blend is all too often made as simple quaffing wine when it can be so much more. Here we have employed a myriad of winemaking techniques including fermentation by ‘wild’ yeast and extensively ‘working’ the yeast lees to produce a complex, richly textured wines with flavours of gooseberry, quince, gun smoke and preserved lemon with hints of grass, lychee and pastry.

Categories: ,
Is rich and textural with flavours of ripe gooseberry, pear, preserved lemon and pastry. The wine has refreshing zesty acidity that is fine and chalky. The finish is long with a tightly focused mineral thread.
The grapes are grown in Wilyabrup and Southern Margaret River. The grapes are cooled before crushing usually directly to press, whilst a small portion actually remains on skins for 4 days. The partially clarified juice is left in older French oak barrels un-inoculated until fermentation begins spontaneously. After fermentation is complete the wine remains in barrel with fortnightly lees stirring for 5 months before assemblage and bottling.
