Edgebaston Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Edgebaston Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Green apple, flinty and tropical fruit flavours on the nose flow through onto the palate where crisp, clean acidity is met by a creamy mid-palate. A softer and rounder version of Sauvignon Blanc than most modern day examples with more than a nod to the French style of the Loire.

Ideal with seafood dishes and spicy summer salads.

ageing : Ideal with seafood dishes and spicy summer salads.

in the vineyard : Soil Type: Loam to red gravel soils

about the harvest: The grapes were HAND-picked early in the mornings and kept cold on their journey to the winery.

in the cellar : The utmost care was taken in the production process to maintain the wines fresh green character and racy acidity.

All grapes were pressed in a variety of methods including destemming-crushing and whole bunch and then fermented in batches in stainless steel tanks of 5000 litres. Cold fermentation with a variety of different yeasts was followed by 6 months maturation on the lees. Regular stirring of the lees allowed a creamy texture to develop in the wine.
