Caves Road Sauvignon Blanc, Margaret River

Caves Road Sauvignon Blanc, Margaret River

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are sourced from vineyard in Karridale, in the south of the region, influenced by the cool breezes from the Southern Ocean. A combination of hand-harvesting and machine harvesting is employed, with speed being key to getting the grapes to the winery still cool. Free run juice from a gentle pressing is then fermented in stainless steel tanks; about 5% of the wine spends a little time in French oak to enrich the palate without imparting any oak flavours to the wine. Shows fragrant flint, nettle and passion fruit on the nose; the palate has tropical fruit balanced with fresh-cut grass with enough freshness to draw out the finish.
