2016 Fermoy Estate Sauvignon Blanc Quarterly
89% Sauvignon Blanc; 11% Semillon
Pale straw yellow with green tints.
Bright, lifted aromatics of passion fruit, guava and kiwi fruit with subtle blackcurrant spice.
The palate displays punchy lime juice, passion fruit and blackcurrant leaf notes, with a subtle, savoury oak spice and textured mouth feel adding complexity and interest. A mouth-watering and refreshing lime acid line runs through the wine providing drive and length to the finish.
20% of the blend spent 4 months (including ferment) in a combination of new and 1-year old French barriques.
Ready for immediate drinking and will continue to drink well over the next 2-3 years.
