Fermoy Estate

2021 Sauvignon Blanc


Vintage: 2021 – a cooler vintage by Margaret River standards resulting in white wines with heightened aromatics and bright natural acids.

Varietals (%’S):  96% Sauvignon Blanc; 3% Semillon; 1% Chardonnay

Appearance: Pale straw with green tints.

Aroma:  Passionfruit, kiwi and guava fruits combine with subtle herbal notes of lime leaf, lemon thyme and lavender.

Palate:  Textured and mouth-filling, fleshy fruits of pear and guava fill the mid-palate before intertwining with hints of nutty oak spice and flinty complexity. A soft, talc-like mineral acid focuses the finish around notes of cashew, lemon barley and kaffir lime.

Oak Detail:  33% of the blend spent 6 months (including ferment) in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barriques, whilst the balance of the blend was fermented cool in stainless steel to retain freshness of aromatics.

Cellaring:  Ready for immediate drinking and will continue to drink well over the next 3-4 years.

Food Pairing:  Will drink well with whole roast chicken seasoned with lemon and herbs.

Alcohol Volume:  13.0%
Acidity:  pH 3.4; TA 7.15g/L

Residual Sugar:  1.0g/L
