Palliser Estate - Pencarrow Sauvignon Blanc - 750ml
COLOUR Pale lemon, almost clear in its youth.
AROMA An explosion of tropical fruits and tart berries; nectarine, passionfruit, gooseberries, tomato leaf and freshly cut herbs.
PALATE A pristine and uncomplicated style distinguished by exquisite purity, there is not a hair out of place in 2019. Focused, bright and direct with a bracingly fresh acid line and a gentle creamy texture from lees stirring on the finish, the length and minerality confirm this wine is a cut above.
WINEMAKING Fruit from older vines in the Clouston Vineyard with the balance from our East Base Vineyard. The grapes are pressed to stainless steel tank were the juice is cooled and settled over 2 days. The clear juice is racked to another tank and then fermented for one month at cool temperatures to maximize the flavours. After fermentation is completed the lees are stirred on several occasions to add complexity and texture to the wine. The older vines tend to throw more tropical notes with less acidity making for a softer style. The wine is vegan friendly
