12,000 Miles Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Regular price $21.00

Tasting Notes

A very pretty wine with lifted aromas of nettles passionfruit, tropical fruit and citrus flower notes. Mingling with subtle flinty mineral characters, and flavours of gooseberry and melon, this wine express the Gladstone terroir. It is a crisp refreshing wine which evolves into a generous fruit-filled mouthful balanced with elegant citrus-like acidity.

pH: 3.22, TA 6.8g/l, residual sugar: 1.9g/l, alcohol: 12.5%

IN THE WINERY

The grapes arrived into the winery in great condition already bursting with delicious Sauvignon Blanc flavours. A gentle press minimised phenolic extraction and maintained fruit characteristics. The juice was cold settled at 5°C for 24 hours before racking then fermented at 12°C with a selection of cultured yeasts for purity. Judicial use of maturing on fermentation lees gave weight and texture without losing the elegant crispness of the wine.

IN THE VINEYARD

The grapes were grown at the home, Dakins Road, Carters and the Cliffs blocks. The vines are all under 3 cane VSP trellising and carefully managed to allow maximum air movement while providing shading in the hot summer months through the canopy. Individual blocks were picked at optimal flavour, sugar and acid levels and processed separately to ensure maximum quality and site expression allowing accurate blending to achieve the desired style.
