Rippon Sauvignon Blanc 2019

$45.00 inc. GST

Attractive lemon-peel, lime-zest, sliced green-apple and beeswax aromas lead to a palate that offers a fresh, crisp and composed array of fresh lemon-juice flavors and a scintillatingly savory, stony finish. From biodynamically grown grapes.

Description

Picked by hand into small, 10kg cases allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery’s sorting table intact. It is then foot stomped in bins and period of skin  maceration is passed (3-15 hours) before being whole bunch pressed and run, by gravity, into a settling tank. After 12 hours of settling the juice is racked, retaining fine lees, and run separately into seasoned French oak barrels (40% of total) and a horizontal fermentation tank.

“The whole shebang for making serious white wine, despite how people often approach the variety in NZ. A different animal. A high pedigree one. Scents of pecan nuts, ripe citrus, green apple, wheat biscuits. Fleshy in the palate, rolls with authority, firm grip but a juicy core and layers and layers of citrus, stone fruit, nutty flavour. Such a delight! So much to sink one’s teeth into.” – 94+ Points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
