LismoreBarrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Availability: 6 in stock
The wine is approached and made in an ?oxidative” style. Older 500 litre barrels were used for 70% of the fermentation and maturation bringing forward richness, intense fruit and complexity. 30% of the wine is fermented and aged in 1500 litre concrete egg tanks to enhance the rich palate texture and minerality. In both the barrels and the eggs, extended less contact contribute further to the rounder mouth feel and creaminess of this elegantly textured wine. As with all Lismore wines, balance is the key. The bracing acidity that is customary in new world Sauvignons has been brought into balance with a carefully chosen pick date and the barrel and egg fermentation and maturation. A full bodied, balanced wine was the goal.
