Textural, toned down Sauv Blanc from the Yarra Valley. This has undergone partial barrel fermentation, adding texture, complexity and weight to the wine. Great if you're after something new...but don't want to stray too far from the trusty Savvy B.
From the Winery
2017 is a very promising vintage, that may prove to be one of the best seen in the Yarra Valley in recent memory.
Plentiful frosty nights and heavy rains in winter delayed budburst, and spring continued in this mild (and wet) fashion. We had excellent canopies with slowly developing bunches. The mild conditions persisted into January and February. Warm, sunny days (not too warm) with crisp nights and mornings. Perfect for slow ripening, delicate flavours and acid retention. There was no disease threat from rain, and we harvested at leisure.
