2020 Happy Jack
2020 Sauvignon Blanc x6
When we all think of Jack, we remember him climbing the beanstalk right up to the sky with a grin from ear to ear that could only be compared to the Cheshire Cat himself!
Our 2020 Happy Jack Sauvignon Blanc is an ode to Alex's Grandfather Jack, who didn't say much until the salty sea spray was in his face and the mighty blue horizon was in front of him.
Pale straw golden in colour this easy, light hearted not over complicated wine is perfect for all wine glasses.
Now for some more serious information - These grapes were 100% leaf plucked in late December 2019 to saturate each bunch in the summer sun vibes which results in thicker, golden yellow berries.
Once handpicked and fermenting, 1/3 was then fermented in barrel to introduce and develop texture, structure and weight when finally blended with the balance. The remainder was fermented in stainless steel to protect some of the delicate aromatics which can get lost through using a barrel.
The result was a deeply attractive alluring wine which has characters of bruised lime, apricots and rock melon.
Remember it's not about the size of the boat but the motion of the ocean (please see wine label for joke reference)
Minimal sulphur added prior to bottling.
