Winemaker’s Notes: We harvested late due to the positive health of the fruit and were aiming for phenolic maturity. The Savagnin was left fresh, and the whole clusters went through carbonic maceration for 7 days and then were pressed into a 2000L concrete vessel. The sugar level was lower than the other vintages with higher acidity, but the fruit was clean and developed.
Sommelier's Notes: Chalk, and crushed rock mineral aromas are underlined by fresh pear, green apple, and honey. The palate is concentrated and weighty based on the balance of acidity, flavour, and a hint of RS (residual sugar). The finish is textured and long. I would let this one sit for a while and develop. If you’re impatient, decant and drink on its own. This is a balanced wine and doesn’t need food to please.
