Flametree Embers Sauvignon Blanc 2016
The 2016 Embers Sauvignon Blanc was tank fermented in separate vineyard batches, blended and then held on yeast lees for a few months in order to add greater texture to the mid palate. 10% of the 2016 Embers Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in French oak, this would normally only be reserved for our SRS SB however we decided not to make SRS SB in 2016. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled in August.
The nose on the 2016 Embers Sauvignon Blanc shows plenty of varietal fruits in the kiwi fruit, lemon grass, passionfruit and lime spectrum. Cool nights, a hallmark of the vintage, has harnessed plenty of fresh, crunchy fruits and wonderful crisp acidity. The 2016 Embers Sauvignon Blanc is a versatile wine that could be enjoyed as an aperitif or with almost any modern food of your choice.
