Bush Vine White Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Vine & Co explores pockets of old dry land bush vines sustainably farmed, fermented naturally with minimal intervention, hand crafted and unhurriedly aged to stimulate your senses.
These low yielding dry land vines produce very small bunches and berries that are very concentrated with fantastic colour and flavours.
This wine is a reflection of cool climate vineyard sites from the west coast to mountainous areas, with a wonderful spectrum of flavour from true Sauvignon Blanc grassy nuances and freshness with a concentration of tropical passion fruit, gooseberry and lemon zest reflected effortlessly on the finish leaving seamless juicy afterthoughts.
Viticulture + Vinification
A blend of Sauvignon Blanc from unique diverse terroirs of old vines which have
received no irrigation and only rely on natural rainfall, therefore producing small concentrated berries with intense fruit flavours, balanced acidity and soft tannins. These wines are made naturally with minimal intervention to allow the wines to reflect an authenticity and sense of place.
Hand harvested into small baskets early morning followed by whole bunch pressing allowing for gentle extraction of juice and fermented cold and naturally very slowly, this method of fermentation allows the wines to reflect more freshness, fruity and floral aromas. The wine is then allowed to age on the lees for added complexity and the integration of the acidity.
