Tasting Notes

SHERWOOD ESTATE 2011 SAUVIGNON BLANC

 

Winemakers Notes

The Sherwood Estate 2011 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown at our Rowley Crescent and Stoney Range vineyards.

The harvest began on the 3rd of April and ended on the 11th of April, 2011. The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and transported to our winery in one tonne bins where it was gently pressed. Selecting from only the free run and light pressings the juice was settled and cool fermented for an average of 21 days. Following a month of yeast lees contact the various parcels of Sauvignon Blanc were blended together, lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.

The Sherwood Estate 2011 Sauvignon Blanc displays fresh, lively gooseberry and passionfruit aromas on the nose. The palate is rich and concentrated with a beautiful, balanced finish.

A wine to be enjoyed over the next two to three years.
