Additional Cases: $0
- The guys at Tahbilk just can do no wrong at the moment, taking out James Halliday's Winery of the Year accolade! Well done Tahbilk! This smashing Sauv Blanc is sourced from only the best, most carefully selected Victorian vineyards and the result is a bright, super fresh and super snappy Sauv Blanc with a heap of grape, passionfruit and guava goodness. 100
Viticulture / Winemaking: This wine was made from a blend of fruit grown in vineyards in the Goulburn Valley and along the Murray River. Following delivery and crushing of the grapes, the Sauvignon Blanc juice was cold settled and racked. An aromatic yeast was used for inoculation and this parcel was cool fermented for 7 days.
Harvest notes: The 2016 vintage was characterised by a very dry and warm growing season interrupted only by torrential rain in early January - 86 mm in just two hours. Fortunately cool weather and steady winds dried things out afterwards and picking started very early. It was one of the earliest vintages on record. It was a quick and condensed vintage with crisp and delicate flavours in the whites and robust, brightly flavoured reds.
Wine description: This 2016 Sauvignon Blanc displays intense tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, papaya and ripe pineapple with a hint of herbaceous characters such as capsicum and tomato bush leaves. Crisp acidity provides a lingering, refreshing finish.
Food recommendations: Try this wine with light, fresh seafood dishes.
Best consumed: 2017 - 2020
