De Grendel Wooded Sauvignon Blanc 2021

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Early morning hand-picked grapes from Darling were crushed, left for 18 hours of skin contact, whereafter the extraction of the juice took place. After that, settling and then racking took place. The juice was barrel fermented and the wine had 130 days contact with oak whilst lees stirring was applied. The wine was then stabilised and bottled.

Tasting Notes: Lemon zest, coriander leaves, and green capsicum are presented to the taster. Focused with superb intensity and medium-bodied, with a multi-dimensional palate. Older oak adds complexity and gravitas.

Ready for drinking now until 2025.

Winemaker: Charles Hopkins
