Brightwater Vineyards Lord Rutherford Barrique Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Vintage

Region

Colour

Sparkling lemon gold in the glass

Aroma

Rich aromas rather than crisp and herbaceous, quite focused lemon/lime/mandarin citrus aromas with undertone notes of gooseberry and green capsicum

Taste & Other Notes

A wonderful rich mouthfeel, firm vanilla notes upfront before evolving into beautifully complex tropical fruit in the mid palate. The finish is long and fresh with beautifully ripe acidity.

This is a delightfully complex expression of Sauvignon Blanc, beautifully clean winemaking lets the fruit shine while the barrel fermentation softens the acidity and adds complexity to the palate without compromising the characters we love in Sauvignon Blanc.
