Spring Seed Forget-Me-Not Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

  • Certified Organic

A blend of two of the most delicate yet brilliantly aromatic varieties, which produces a fine effect in the glass. A nose of cut grass and fig leads to a balanced, middle weight palate and finishes with a crisp, fresh, lime/lemon persistence.

Culture: Forget-me-not Sauvignon Blanc Semillon makes an ideal apertif when chilled or may be enjoyed with a variety of asian foods, cheeses, white meat, poultry or even dessert.

Spring Seed Wines are made from grapes lovingly grown in our family's organic vineyard located in the premium wine region of McLaren Vale, South Australia. The vineyard was established in the early 1970's by Peter and Anthea Bosworth, and is now owned and run by their son Joch, who began the conversion to organic viticulture in 1995. The vines are fully certified 'A' grade organic by Australian Certified Organic. a process that takes four years and involves yearly audits and random sampling of produce.

The Spring Seed Wine labels are unashamedly inspired by vintage flower seed packets created at the turn of the last century. The colour, clarity and beauty of the original seed packets are quite remarkable. We chose three different flower images to adorn each one of our McLaren Vale wines, simply because they are quite lovely. The Forget-me-not Semillon Sauvignon Blanc has the Pot Marigold (Calendula officinalis) Forget-me-not (Myosotis spp) and Sunflower (Helianthus annuus).

Vintage Notes
We had above average winter rainfall and although we had a dry June, we recorded decent falls in July and August. Below average rainfall was recorded in spring, and we experienced some warm spring nights. Summer rain tally was also below average despite a wet December. McLaren Vale experienced warm a warm Autumn ripening period with low rainfall. Overall vintage in McLaren Vale produced wine of excellent quality and while total tonnages were down for the season, compared to a wet and fertile 2017, the reports from winemakers on wine quality has been almost universally positive.
 
Winemaking
Making the Forget-me-not in the tradition of a beautiful fresh and floral dry white style is reasonably simple. We pick both Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc at night, to keep hold of the delicate characters of the varieties. Semillon is picked later, generally. We ferment both Sem and SB in stainless steel tanks, because we can control the temperature in the tanks and ensure a cool ferment. We don’t mature the wine in oak barrels, because we are making a fresh bright wine. Oxygen is the enemy of the floral characters, so we try and keep it away (this is called reductive handling). Once the grapes have gone through ferment it is pretty much straight to bottle.
 
Tasting Note
Imagine lying in a meadow late in summer with the smell of sweet hay all around you, underlain with the delicate fragrance of white flowers.  This is what you get when you open a bottle of the Spring Seed ‘Forget-me-not’ and when you taste it, that dreamy summer meadow follows through onto the palate with a twist of lime, too.  Forget-me-not is a classic white wine blend, and is so versatile; mixing and matching with spicy Thai food, creamy cheeses or on its own.
