2022 Michael Hall Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc is a variety that owes much of its popularity to the Malborough boom, though its history far preceeds that, most notably with the barrel fermented styles that coined the term “fumé blanc”. Grown at Coleman Road in Gumeracha at an elevation of 480m and a westerly aspect.
For wine nerds like me: Average winter rains were followed by a mild summer. Yields were low with light bunches of excellent quality. Picked on the 18th of March, 10% fermented on skins, the remainder pressed and wild fermented in French oak puncheons. Matured for eight months in barrel, filtered and bottled.
