Chain Of Ponds Black Thursday Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia
Black Thursday Vineyard played a role in extinguishing some nasty bushfires which threatened the Adelaide hamlets of Kuitpo and Gumeracha. Cheers were raised and there were many thanks given, but nothing could save chilled bottles of Chain of Ponds Sauvignon Blanc from the tired and thirsty firefighters. Consider this drink to be something quite the opposite of a parched and arid flame, think of green grass, iced kiwi fruit, cool cucumber and asparagus. A great match to the freshest sashimi or traditional Coquilles St Jacques.

Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from several fine vineyards around Gumeracha, Kenton Valley and Kuitpo. Two parcels are picked early in the season to maximise herbaceousness, apple and cucumber notes. The balance were picked to a schedule which would maximise natural acid, tropical flavours and mild citrus characters. Grapes arrive at dawn and are treated to an air bag press, keeping the free runs separate. Parcels are inoculated to a selection of yeasts and separately fermented. Batches were held on yeast lees for two months to enhance mouthfeel, the best components were assembled into the finished wine and bottled early, unwooded and unoaked, to retain vibrant freshness.
Pale straw with green hues. Freshly cut tropical melon nose with nuances of passionfruit, crisp apple and freshly squeezed lime juice. Hints of gooseberry, box tree and cucumber. Lush fruit driven palate, lively and refreshing, exhibiting balanced tropical fruits and citrus along with crisp freshly chilled apple and cucumber notes. Well balanced linear acidity lifts the fruit sweetness and gives a mouth watering finish of great length and flavour persistence.
