Long Row Sauvignon Blanc
The grapes for this wine were sourced from the meticulously attended Angove family vineyards and other premium Riverland growers. Soils are predominantly red sandy loam over limestone, on gently undulating east west ridges. The mild year was great for aromatic varietal expression and has allowed us to harvest the fruit with excellent flavour intensity. The vigorous Sauvignon Blanc really benefited from this mild and even growing season which lead to a juicy natural acidity contributing to excellent palate weight and flavour persistence overall.
Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible the grapes were transported to the winery and pressed using modern membrane tank presses. After cold settling the clear juice was carefully racked to cooled fermentation tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Cool fermentation was followed by minimal handling, filtration and bottling at the Angove winery.
This wine is perfectly suited to a fresh summer salad or spicy grilled chicken breast.
Pale straw with attractive green hues.
Herbaceous and tropical characters leap from the glass with some lime and lemon
aromas following. Clean crisp flavours of tropical fruits abound with some light gooseberry/herbaceous
notes and a long full clean finish.
