Silver Lining 2020
81% Sauvignon Blanc and 19% Semillon. Crisp on the palate with lime and citrus notes, tropical fruit, the Semillon lending distinct green apple, pear and green papaya flavours. Refreshing acidity. Wild ferment and low in sulphites.
The grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning hours when the temperatures were still low. We source the grapes for our Sauvignon Blanc from a vineyard that is situated at a higher elevation. The Semillon portion is harvested from Old Bush Vines. Sustainable and responsible vineyard practices, working with organic fertilizer and spraying material. Whole bunch pressing and maceration for 2 days. Slow, natural fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel and kept on the leese a couple of months for complexity.
