    A not so savvy Sauv.

     

    We intentionally held this wine back but it's finally ready for you and we couldn't be happier with how it's tasting.

     

    Left to mature in barrel for nine months and rest in bottle for six, this added time contributed greatly to the final product. The additional time in bottle has allowed for a full expression of its developed texture and maturity.

     

    A fresh delicious wine with an eye catching crown cap that can be popped with ease. What more could you want? (That's a hypothetical question - before the emails of winning the lotto come though. If you do win however, remember we're friends!)

     

    Only 246 bottles were produced in 2019.

    This is a product resulting from an excellent growing season.

    The grapes were 100% leaf plucked to increase sun exposure, thicken skins and develop grape flavours that lean towards more tropical, ripe and stone fruit tones.  The wine was fermented in tank before maturing in barrel for 9 months.

    The result is a very well balanced wine with structure, acidity and texture. Tropical notes and aromas to match.

     

     

    Minimal sulphur added prior to bottling. 

     

    Bottles produced: 246

     

    13.5% ABV

    • Good to know

      A few definitions to provide more information because the more you know the better choices you can make.


      What’s the deal with sulphur/SO2/preservative 220? As the name suggests its a preservative protecting the wine against oxidation. You know how you bite an apple and leave it? Then the flesh turns a shade of brown, yip well that’s oxidation as well. 

      There is a misconception about the link between sulphur in your wine and the thumping head the morning afte. Is this the sulphur? Nope this is dehydration, seriously!
      Some people are allergic to SO2, but if this was you, you would already know about it!  As a rule of thumb if you can eat a dried apricot (sulphur levels approx 3000ppm) you'll be fine with wine (sulphur levels approx 150ppm)

      Overall, the less we can add the better.

    • Live in Martinborough?

      Perfect, I'll drop the wine off to you personally. I would love to introduce myself and explain a bit about the wine you have just bought!
