Sauvignon Blanc

This is not a typical Sauvignon Blanc! 8 months ageing on its fine lees in old 500L French Oak barrels have imparted a slight golden hue and a buttery almond perfume to the lively core of gooseberry, lime zest and fresh picked pea pod. The real heart of the wine is its firm, flinty core of minerality. This Sauvignon Blanc calls out for fresh local pickerel or perch!

100% Niagara grown, our Sauvignon Blanc was hand harvested in early October after achieving optimal ripeness. It was hand sorted,crushed and whole cluster pressed then cool fermented in stainless steel by wild yeasts. The wine aged in stainless steel on fine lees for six months undergoing partial malolactic fermentation. It was then racked off and bottled in the spring of 2018.
Light fresh herbaceous grassy notes fold in neatly with citrus pith, starfruit and wet stony minerality. On the palate-focused and lean with subtle floral notes- finishing clean and steely.
