The 2017 MadFish Reserve Sauvignon Blanc boasts an aroma of stewed apples, lemon blossom and herbaceous thyme. This is accompanied by a generous palate of nectarine or white peach, giving way to mouth-watering lemon curd with hints of more tropical grapefruit and pineapple. These generous flavours linger before a refreshing dry finish and a subtle flinty minerality.
Drinks well now and over the next year.
Night harvest at cool temperatures, immediate crushing and pressing at the winery, and cool fermentation ensures maximum fruit freshness and varietal aromatics in this wine. A small component is fermented in older oak, giving richness and texture to the palate. No malolactic fermentation has taken place, allowing the crisp bright fruit notes to shine through.
