Bay of Fires Sauvignon Blanc, Tasmania 2015/16Pale yellow in colour with a slight green hue, the bouquet displays fragrant aromas of abundant exotic fruits with delicate hints of flint and fresh herbs. The palate is finely textured, displaying classic Sauvignon Blanc characters of guava and passion fruit. Blended from grapes grown in the Coal River Valley and Derwent Valley regions; combining the best of new and old world techniques. The majority of the blend is fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel. A small portion of the blend is filled to second-use French oak barriques without clarification and fermented naturally to achieve optimum balance and complexity.
