Product Description

Nepenthe Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Unique in character, classically Nepenthe. Grapefruit and subtle tropical notes with good palate weight and crisp. 

Tasting notes:

Vintage 2013 experienced below average rainfall throughout the growing period
providing a very dry vintage and greatly reduced disease pressure resulting tin very clean fruit at harvest. Temperatures were slightly warmer than average during the flowering period resulting in excellent bunch development and even berry size. Crop levels were slightly above average on the whites and average on all reds resulting in very balanced canopies. Conditions during the ripening period were ideal with mild day time temperatures and cold nights, all conducive to excellent flavour development and the retention of natural acidity in the fruit. Harvest commenced in early February with fruit ripening being slower than the previous vintage allowing more time to coordinate harvest and allowed us to harvest all varieties at their optimum maturity and flavour profile. The combination of moderate crop levels and mild conditions during the ripening period has resulted in some of the best quality fruit for a number of years. 

Nepenthe Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a range of selected vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The fruit is harvested in the early hours of the morning, taking advantage of the cool night air. Fruit is then crushed and chilled into a pneumatic press, where the free run juice and pressings are separated. The juice is cold settled for 3 - 4 days, racked off solids and then fermented in stainless steel tanks with a small proportion fermented in French oak barrels. Post fermentation individual batches are blended to style.
