2020 VDF 'Hapax'

Les Jardins de Theseiis

Regular price $49 750ml Sale

Sauvignon Blanc from 30 year old vines, grown on soils made up of sand, clay and silex. De-stemmed by hand, then macerated for 6 days to give a light orange colour. Aged in old barrels for 10 months. Not fined or filtered. Zero added SO2 at any stage.

This is a lightly coloured orange wine, with a clear appearance. On the nose it is clean and pure, with excellent restraint. There are notes of iodine, jackfruit and a hint of cut grass. The wine is fresh and alive in the mouth, light and easy to drink. Lovely linear texture, medium acidity, and nice tension on the finish. As per usual, they doing an amazing job coaxing the best out of this variety. The short maceration means that its quite elegant, rather than overly expressive.
