2017 VDF 'Surin'
100% Sauvignon Blanc. Whole bunch, direct press, with ferment commencing in fibreglass. Transferred to old barrels for 18 months. Zero SO2.
I love the smell of Surin. It's so different to your usual Sauvignon Blanc. Smoother and less harsh perhaps. Lemons, honey, hay and pineapple. There are underlying florals, a creaminess, and a mineral hint. Gently textural with mouth-watering acidity. Lots of flavour and mid palate, long and juicy. Complexity builds in the glass. Very moreish, and a game changer for the haters of Savvy B.
