Sauvignon Blanc, 'Frankland River'
Sauvignon Blanc, 'Frankland River', Point Ormond
Sauvignon Blanc from Frankland River. We’re down south-west of the continent in this cool climate, isolated wine region. Whites are all about high acid here, with riesling and sauvignon blanc the mainstays.
The Savvy is picked based on flavor and acid profile. It comes from Blocks 05, 15, 16, 18 picked during the last week of February. It undergoes a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel. Time on lees also helps with yeast autolysis adding mouth feel while still retaining the pure clean acid freshness of the wine. Minimal fining, crossflow filtration. The end result is a balance between the tropical passionfruit notes known to the region, and delicate floral herbal nuances with capsicum and citrus notes.
