Sauvignon Blanc | 6-PACK

2021 – Margaret River – Sauvignon Blanc.

Sometimes Sauvignon Blanc can be a little bit thin, one dimensional & you could even say – a little bit boring.

To make sure our first 100% Sauvignon Blanc release is far from boring, Japo from McHenry Hohnen in Margaret River has made a wine for us that beautifully links the primary varietal green crispy and flinty tones with the riper more tropical characters. In addition to this, very sensitive use of French oak has made this wine silkier and more complete. VEGAN Wine.

This drop will pair beautifully with any seafood and chicken dishes – or even some warm olives, fresh bread and VOO.

MIKE’S WINE NOTES:

Mike Davies – Wine Maker – Founder Greenskin Wine

This delicious new wine was expertly made by winemaker Japo Dalli Cani of McHenry Hohnen.

During the lead up to the 21 Vintage we had a discussion about how to maintain the essence and crunchy freshness of the Sauvignon fruit but avoiding the one-dimensional, near anorexic style that this variety can produce.

Japo’s suggestion was to augment some of the wine with a touch of oak to give it a little weight, softness and complexity – but not so much that we end up with one of those bolder “Fume” style wines which to me can be an awkward mismatch of primary fruit and full-on oakiness.

I am pleased to say that the plan worked and we are very happy with the result. This wine is also our first VEGAN wine.

  • Colour – This wine is pale straw in colour with some green tints around the margin.
  • Bouquet – Clean fresh gooseberry & grapefruit bouquet with lifted fruit characters taking centre stage ahead of some slight gunpowder/cordite smokiness that gives it a lovely spike of “Euro” elegance.
  • Palate – The palate is clean and snappy with an abundance of Granny Smith apple and grapefruit citrus character. The clever use of oak has given the palate some weight and silkiness that makes this a very complete win.

ANDREW’S WINE NOTES:

Andrew Caillard – Master of Wine – Author & Film Maker

Pale colour. Fresh lemon curd grapefruit aromas with lifted gooseberry/ grassy notes.

A refreshing style with lovely lemon curd, grapefruit, lemon-grass, grassy flavours, tonic water notes, fine supple textures and crunchy long acidity.

Fresh and delicious wine with attractive energy and mineral length. 13.2% alc
