Normans Bin C108 Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Normans Bin C108 - Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Bright green to pale lemon colour. Aromas of citrus, passionfruit and freshly cut grass dominate. There is more depth than your average Sauvignon Blanc with some gooseberry and a touch of flint in the background. Zesty and flavoursome.
Excellent balanced acidity keeps the wine fresh and zippy on the palate, gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours are very appealing balance with the acid to give a very clean and crisp taste on the closing palate.
Select parcels of fruit were sourced from a single vineyard in the iconic cool climate region of the Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand picked during the cool early hours of the morning - this enabled us to select only the best fruit from the vineyard from this tough vintage. The fruit was then transported to the winery and immediately crushed, chilled and pressed, where the free run juice and pressings were separated. The juice is cold settled for 3-4 days, racked off solids and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Post fermentation individual batches are blended to style then the finished parcels are carefully assessed, with only the finest chosen for the final blend prior to bottling.
Made to drink upon release while the fruit flavour is at its most fresh and vibrant although will develop more character over the short term.
