After a record-breaking heatwave in the weeks prior to harvest 2019, we held early fears as to the quality of the vintage in 2019. Thankfully, the weather and wine gods were shining on us, providing a cool change in the first week of picking which heralded the start of four weeks of milder, more stable weather. The resulting white wines are much finer, more elegant and complex than we could ever have hoped and reflected in the quality of our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc.
You won’t find any overblown, herbaceous, fruit-bomb Savvies in your Feathertop case! Instead you will find a restrained, elegant wine with layers of flavours of citrus, melon, passionfruit and green apples, a surprisingly textured palate and zesty acidity which leaves the finish crisp and dry.
Enjoy with: Summer seafood salads or a straw.
