Lismore Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc
The Lismore Cape South Coast Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc is a full bodied, elegant and beautifully balanced wine. The wine was made in an ‘oxidative’ style. The must was barrel-fermented in older 300 litre barrels to bring forward richness and additional complexity. The wine was given extended lees contact with occasional bâtonnage, to contribute further to the rounder mouth feel and creaminess of this elegantly textured wine. Matured for nine months, the bracing acidity that is customary in New World Sauvignon Blancs has been brought into balance with a carefully chosen pick date and the barrel fermentation, creating a full-bodied, balanced wine. Floral notes of passion flower, fynbos and granadilla, combine with guava, gooseberry and pear on the palate along with an underlying minerality, imparting its signature style. A true expression of this unique terroir and its equally unique winemaker.
