2020 Henry of Pelham Fume Sauvignon Blanc

2020 Fumé Sauvignon Blanc Estate

Regular price $21.95

Perhaps our least typical cool climate white, we pursue longer hang times with Sauvignon Blanc. This pushes the flavours past the common thiol driven southern hemisphere style into the turpenic range more common in Maritime climates (i.e. Bordeaux, the warmer years in the Loire's Tourraine, or even fresher Napa styles). As a result, melon and grapefruit flavours dominate the palate while honeysuckle aromas fill out the bouquet. This is supported by soft vanilla notes from partial barrel fermentation and aging in oak. *Vintage subject to change without notice.
