2017 Forest Edge Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

2017 Forest Edge Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Orange, NSW

Quite pale as a young wine which is typical of Sauvignon Blanc that hasn’t seen oak. Lifted talc notes and some background herbaceous character but definitely not over the top. A lively palate and at 12% alcohol has a lovely softness to the mouth feel. The talc and passionfruit notes give a flavoursome palate aide by a juicy acidity. Excellent drinking as the weather warms up.

Wine Profile
Vinification
With Orange the last region to be picked, the day temperatures can be on the cool side. Even so, the fruit is kept in cold storage overnight and then trucked to the Hunter Valley. After crushing, the clean juice is racked and an even, cool ferment conducted with an aromatic yeast. Matured in 100% stainless steel (no oak).
Winemaker Comments
A different winter to 2015 with a very wet June/July enabling a very strong bud burst and Spring growth. The 100mm in December was a welcome top up as January and February were scorchers. Harvest was pushed back by several factors across most of Australia – cold wet winter, higher crop load and a very hot summer. We picked Forest Sauvignon Blanc on the 17th and 18th March and just before the skies opened on the 22nd March.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with Asian flavours.
