2016 Michael Hall Sauvignon Blanc, Adelaide Hills
Grown on the steep east-facing Hill Block in Summertown. A warm and dry winter of 2015 brought on an early growing season. Average summer temperatures followed and the Hill Block was hand-picked on 26 February 2016. Most was pressed to French oak barrels (33% new, Damy) while 10% was left on skins and fermented in tank before pressing to barrel. Nine months on lees, fined and filtered.
This barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc combines blackcurrant, elderflower, peach, flint and citrus characters with a subtle viscosity.
