ATLANTIC SLOPES 2016 (Sauvignon Blanc)
Metamorphic Range – Flagship Wine
Alc: 13.5% RS: 1.9gl TA: 7.2gl pH: 3.07
A blend of 2 blocks of Sauvignon Blanc that differ in elevation, soil type, aspect & yield. A true “terroir wine” as only grapes from Hillcrest Estate were vinified. A lively greenish yellow wine with abundant citrus fruit on the nose. Fresh lime / lemon flavours with a distinct minerality. The 5% Semillon adds body and softens any rasping acidity.
Will improve over the next 2 – 3 years.
