Carrick Sauvignon Blanc

Bannockburn

Although Sauvignon Blanc is not automatically associated with Central Otago, we have been producing this wine from our Bannockburn vineyards since 2000. We find that the naturally low yields provide us with clean, ripe fruit ideal for making a food friendly style.

Residual Sugar: 2.0 g.L-1
Alcohol: 13.0%
Harvest Dates: 16 April 2016

This wine is made from 100% Estate Grown, single vineyard, BioGro certified
organic, Central Otago fruit. The grapes for this wine are grown under a Sylvos
training system to achieve various levels of ripeness which allows us to build layers
of complexity and flavour.
The wine is then fermented using wild yeast, with 60% of the blend fermented in our
old French oak barrels from 2001.
Carrick Sauvignon Blanc is made according to our philosophy of minimal
intervention and is bottled without fining.

A very aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. The wine has strong fragrances of lychee, gooseberry and passion-fruit. Initially textural on entry, in the mouth the wine leads into a broad wide acidity with flavours of gooseberry flowing through onto the finish.
