Martins Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2017
- Certified Organic
- Vegan Suitable
Although not quite fitting into our No Added Preservative category, this one is very low preservative.
The 2016 Martins Hill Sauvignon Blanc is a very pale youthful wine with lemon citrus aromas, a waft of guava & pineapple and a hint of fennel seed. At only 10.8% alcohol you'd expect the palate to be quite zesty and it is, with a good clean acid line, finishing dry with a little bit of bitterness that leaves your mouth watering. This wine shows great varietal aroma and palate.
As usual, hand picked on an unusually cold morning, only 5°C, crushed before midday, and left fermenting for 60 days.
Martins Hill Organic Wines is a NASAA certified organic vineyard, Organic Vigneron and owner Michael Sweeney planted the first vines in 1985, more vines were added to the vineyard in 2000. Over the past 3 years we have planted Riesling additional Pinot Noir and a Shiraz block has been planted on the slopes of the southwestern side of Martins Hill. These vines have all come from our library rows.
