Idiom Sauvignon Blanc 2018 Barrel-Fermented


Sold Out

A delicate and complex barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc. Inviting notes of lemon custard pastry, cinnamon and a tinge of green pepper. Further floral aromas of violets and lavender. A creamy, chalky, textured wine with soft acidity and good length. Moreish exotic whiffs of toffee apple, dried mango, candied apricot and shortbread biscuit complete this interesting and unusual picture.

Vinification Details

The grapes were picked in early morning and transported to the cold container for overnight storage. The next day the grapes were first bunch sorted before being destemmed and then berry sorted. The berries went straight into the press, and the juice thereafter was settled for 2
days before being racked and inoculated for fermentation. The wine was fully barrel fermented and aged a further 8 months, before being lightly filtered and bottled.
