2016 Rockburn Sauvignon Blanc
Our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc displays a complex, curious nose of fresh gooseberry, dill,
green apples and flint, carrying through to a dry palate of white-fleshed nectarine and
crisp apple supported by creamy oak.
Chasing enhanced texture, our entire Parkburn Vineyard component (13%) was wild-fermented in French barrels lending a weighty mouthfeel and broader structure.
Bright yet elegant; this wine is ideal with fresh seafood, poached chicken
and otherwise sunny lunches, and is most exciting to drink now but will harmonize and
soften over the next five years.
