F-SERIES
SAUVIGNON BLANC 2010
An atypical style of Sauvignon Blanc (for Marlborough) that is textural with tastes of earth and mineral rather than fruit. Fruit with good exposure to light was hand harvested from a discrete one acre block on the estate that we call the Quail Trail. Bunch pressed with no juice clarification and fermented with uninoculated yeasts, left on lees for 11 months prior to bottling. Harmless crystals may form in the bottle.
CRITICAL COMMENT
“Barrel fermentation and lengthy barrel age on the yeast lees but still shows good varietal character with ripe tree fruit and capsicum flavours. Quite a complex and slightly phenolic style that is best with food. Rich and slightly quirky Sauvignon Blanc that I really love, although it’s hardly a crowd pleaser. Should age well.”- Bob Campbell MW, 2013
