The inaugural Battle of Bosworth Sauvignon Blanc has cut grass and lime, with a hint of passionfruit on the nose, flavours which follow through in the mouth, accompanied by fine, fresh acidity, good length and a super clean finish
Average winter rains were followed by a very cool and dry late January/ February, resulting in very healthy vines with big canopies and intensely varietal fruit which held their acidity extraordinarily well during the March hot spell.
Grapes were picked early at just on 11° Beaumé, gently pressed and then taken through a slow, cool ferment. A very small amount of free run went straight to barrel (new French) for a barrel ferment to add complexity.
