Singlefile Fumé Blanc 2016

Sourced from the Stoney Crossing single vineyard. Showing the non-believers what can be done with Sauvignon Blanc. Wild fermentation and 50% oak maturation.

Singlefile, Fumé Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Pemberton, 2016

An expressive nose: Lime curd, flint, grilled pineapple stonefruit kernel, green apple skin, hay/straw and smoke. This marries the explosive, bright freshness of Sauv Blanc melon/lime/tropical fruit which is tempered, forged into maturity and refinement with quality smoky oak and nut cream. An exemplar of the style in Australia.

RRP: $30
Alc: 12.7%
Rating: 18/20
