De Bortoli Winemaker Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2017
A beautifully fresh and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. This wine opens with aromas of passionfruit and ripe green apples. Flavours of tropical fruit are soft and round with light acidity, keeping the palate fresh and crunchy.
From the Winery
A record wet start to Winter and Spring gave soil moisture a good head start to the ripening/growing season. The increased cloud cover kept us below average in the solar radiation stakes, which made for a long ripening period. A three week later start then usual not finishing harvest until after Easter. The Summer was dry and warm keeping disease pressure at bay.
Vineyards are selected with vines that have large canopies to help protect the fruit from the harsh Summer sun. This helps promote those intense aromatics that has made Sauvignon Blanc famous. We also manage to sneak some King and Yarra fruit in as well. Winemaking techniques included fermentation at elevated temperatures and fermentation with solids. These techniques improve texture and softness without sacrificing varietal expression.
