Sauvignon Blanc Henty Victoria
Pure Sauvignon Blanc, luxuriously barrel fermented through the spontaneous action of wild indigenous yeasts. A curious selection of tubular cigar shaped casks are essential to the style, longer and slimmer than traditional barriques to maximize sedimentery lees contact and enhance exposure to oak. Twelve months of age on light solids builds creamy richness and introduces Burgundian influenced, grapefruit boulangère complexity. A voluptuously proportioned, yet elegant, textural wine, a bliss alongside lemon and rosemary partridge or quail.
Pale straw green hues. A delicious nose of ripe yellow stone fruit, hints of dried pineapple over subtle oak undertones. Delicate mineral notes and firm chalky flavours, lending weight to the textural palate, supple oak and time on lees lending interest and increasing depth to the back. Fine acidity, well balanced and fabulous length.
