Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc, Cape South Coast, Lismore Estate Vineyards

A funky and sauvage Sauvignon Blanc with atypical explosive spice, toffee and passion flower flavours. A true expression of this unique terroir and its equally unique winemaker.
The wine was made in an ‘oxidative’ style. The must was barrel-fermented in older 300 litre barrels to bring forward richness and additional complexity. The wine was given extended less contact with occasional b̢tonnage, to contribute further to the rounder mouth feel and creaminess of this elegantly textured wine. The wine was aged for nine months. The bracing acidity that is customary in New World Sauvignon Blancs has been brought into balance with a carefully chosen pick date and the barrel fermentation, creating a full-bodied, balanced wine.

Three words to describe this wine:

funky – opulent – oak
RRP: å£27.53
