2017 Stich Sauvignon Blanc

2017 Stich Sauvignon Blanc

from 21.00

The nose dominates with enticing florals, ripe stone fruits and fresh zesty citrus. To taste this follows through to the pallet with the same fresh citrus and ripe white stone fruit flavor’s, an underlying lees driven textural backbone and a pure mineral concentration. A perfectly balanced and crunchy acidity gives the wine lift, presence and poise.

OVERVIEW

Our Stich Sauvignon Blanc is named in recognition of John ‘Stich’ Stichbury founder of Jackson Estate. The character of this wine typically reflects its origin and season, being distinctly aromatic and intensely flavoured and finishes with refreshingly crisp acidity.


HARVEST

Vintage 2017 was truly a mixed bag. Due to exceptional weather and consistency of ripening that was experienced early in the growing season all our handpicked fruit was successfully picked early in the vintage.

In total 12 separate vineyard blocks of Sauvignon Blanc were harvested from the 3 Estate vineyards over a 3 week period starting the last week of March. The extended season allowed us to individually pick each block at the optimum levels of maturity.
