Sauvignon Blanc Barrique, Marlborough, Saint Clair

A rich, textured wine showing complex aromas of green coffee bean and vanilla pod combined with notes of wild flowers, butterscotch and a hint of gunflint.
The grapes were whole bunch pressed, briefly settled then racked into seasoned French oak barriques. The juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain. Post fermentation the wine was aged on its lees for nine months, with twice weekly barrel stirring and underwent spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Each barrel was tasted regularly by the winemaking team and only the very best and most interesting barrels were selected for the final blend. The wine was lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
