Idiom Sauvignon Blanc 2021 Barrel-Fermented


A delicate and complex barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc. Lime yellow in colour. Inviting notes of orange blossoms and white pepper with hints of red grapefruit and dried herbs. A flinty, chalky, textured wine with hints of granite, a soft acidity and good length. Riper whiffs of dried apricots and candied sweets 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.
