Coldstream Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Sourced predominantly from hillside vineyards in the cool Upper Yarra, the fruit was gently pressed with approximately seventy percent of the juice being barrel fermented and matured in older French oak barriques and puncheons. The remaining thirty percent was fermented in stainless steel and stored on fine lees.
A small percentage of Semillon from the Lower Yarra was used in the final blend to add complexity and texture.
On the nose it has attractive passionfruit with hints of guava and lime citrus. Fragrant white flower notes are evident with hints of underlying nougat and subtle French oak. The palate is vibrant, textural and harmoniously balanced with crisp lemon acidity. Attractive notes of passionfruit and gooseberry are supported by nuances of nettle and lemon zest. Subtle oak is evident in the background adding complexity and structure.
