A consistent best-seller at Fairview, our Sauvignon Blanc was first introduced when Charles Back went on a mission to find the best local soils to match the varieties, and acquired this cool climate land in Darling. With notes of passion fruit accompanied by bright citrus aromas on the nose, this is a full, rich and textured wine. You can’t go wrong.
The grapes were machine harvested very early in the morning, arriving at the cellar before sunrise. Whole berries were gently pressed, after which the juice settled for 48 hours and was then racked into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The wine was left on its fine lees after fermentation, prior to blending and bottling.
