Fermented at low temperature to maximise fruit potential and aromatics. We purposely don’t reduce to full dryness because that’s the way, ah-hah, ah-hah, we like it, ah-hah.
A warmer climate twist on the traditional. Think Sauv Blanc with a tropical undertone. Lively and aromatic with green herbs, gooseberry, white peach and grapefruit flavours. Off-dry with juicy acidity for a full, round finish. A generously flavoured palate packed with attractive white stone fruits pulled together with a delicate acid line.
Heathcote’s warmer climate expresses ripe stone-fruit flavours in Sauvignon Blanc. Just for fun, we have created a faintly sweet little franken-fruit monster – charming S.B and non-S.B drinkers alike. Don’t generally partake in the Savvy B?? That’s ok, you’re gonna like this one!
