2017 del Rios Sauvignon Blanc
The del Rios 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is a barrel-influenced style differing from the more mainstream, more fruit-filled style, we seek to create a more complex expression of the fruit. The wild yeast used for fermentation provides a more subtle articulation of the fruit, a more generous palate, and greater longevity.
This vintage is a more savoury demonstration of Sauvignon Blanc and is designed to complement food. The nose is tight, but exhibits quince, hints of citrus, interwoven with minerality which balances the acidity. It has lovely texture and mouthfeel and finishes with green apple and cassis flavours that linger.
