Heirloom Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Made under the well awarded hand of Elena Brooks and  Rosie Signer. Natural ferment and free run juice from press to tank.

Heirloom Vineyards, Sauvignon Blanc , Adelaide Hills, 2020

Highly floral. Spring time aromas (without the need for antihistamines) daffodil, fresh asparagus spear, light chalk dust, easy mandarin peel citrus/tropicals with a hint of richer passionfruit creme. Wound tighter than a watch. Beyond restrained, this is ratcheted  to near breaking point. With buttercups and suggestions of lighter tropical and citrus fruits this drives home like a finger grinding into a breastbone with a minerally, almost saline, super tart, highly mouth watering finish. To be honest, I’d like a little more flesh on the bones.
