Honeycomb Corner Sauvignon Blanc 2023
Pale straw in colour, with a nose of super aromatic orange
blossom, apricots, citrus, and honeydew. The palate is full of
mandarin, kiwifruit, and lemongrass with hints of honeysuckle.
Zippy acid is tamed by creamy notes, and the wine has a long,
2023 will go down as a classic Margaret River vintage. It got off
to a slow start thanks to a cool winter and spring, but a lack of
spring rain events led to a good fruit set, resulting in solid yields
across the board. Warm and sunny conditions through January,
February and March proved ideal for ripening for all varietals
with low disease pressure.
The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to retain the
fresh, clean varietal characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc. The
fruit was crushed and pressed, with the juice settled under cool
conditions before being racked off the lees and fermented under
temperature control to ensure the varietal Sauvignon Blanc
characters are preserved. A small portion of the juice was
transferred to the barrel for fermentation to add some
complexity to the wine. The wine was then fined, filtered, and
sent to bottle showcasing the perfectly crisp, clean aromas and
flavours of a Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc. Vegan friendly.
