From The Winery
Individual blocks of Sauvignon Blanc were picked based on flavour, ripeness and style. These parcels were gently pressed to ensure minimal colour and phenolic extraction. Predominately fermented cool between 13-15 degrees in a tank for aromatic fruit flavour with a portion barrel fermented in new and older French oak for texture and length. The wines were then left on natural yeast lees to build texture and complexity. Following maturation the wine was then carefully blended, gently fined and bottled.
A wet growing season was followed up with a cool spring & a warm summer. The harvest period was then 2 weeks behind average from previous vintages. This slightly later harvest allowed the fruit to mature to full flavour ripeness in cooler conditions. This has resulted in fantastic wines with ripe flavours, balanced acid and lower alcohol.
Created by the McWilliam’s Wines family, the McW 480 range is a celebration of the high altitude regions of New South Wales. Harvested from vines grown at an average of 480 metres above sea level, Fresh, fragrant and vibrant, these cool climate wines are a perfect match to many cuisines.
