Tasting Notes for Spring Seed Forget-Me-Not Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2021 from the Winery

‘Forget-me-not’ has the whiff of an English summer meadow, along with a lemony citrussy and lantana palate. This wine is a super classic white wine blend which lends itself to all sorts of occasions – an afterwork drink on a spring afternoon, with a chicken tagine, or some soft cheese. It’s versatile and delicious.

Vintage 2021

Good winter and early spring rains were followed by a generally dry and mild growing season. After the leaner vintages of 2019 and 2020 it was nice to see a return to long term average crop levels. We had a slow and steady ripening period without any excessive heat spikes which has resulted in super varietal fruit intensity and balanced natural acidity.

A Mary Poppins kind of vintage; practically perfect! Joch is always loathe to comment favourably about vintage quality,  for fear of jinxing things – he can be superstitious like that, but by the end of harvest, the word ‘exceptional’ was heard to come out of his mouth.

Spring Seed

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).

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.
