Sauvignon Blanc 2017

An intriguing Sauvignon Blanc from the cool climate Adelaide Hills.

Enormously lifted and aromatic. Tropical fruit salad and cut grass aromas leap from the glass. The palate is decadent with mandarin, citrus and snow pea flavours in spades. This wine shows great poise, finishing with racy acidity and fantastic length of flavour.

WINEMAKER COMMENTS

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the cool climate Adelaide Hills. Small batches of grapes are gently crushed, chilled, and then transferred to stainless steel basket presses. Gentle extraction of the juice is critical in these early stages to retain the delicate fruit characters. To add complexity and mouthfeel, a small percentage of the wine is partially fermented in aged French oak for two to three weeks.

Despite being a good match for fish, the name has nothing to do with them! A fishplate is a term for the metal plates that collect grape bunches on a harvester, and often break when navigating around the steep, windy vineyards.
