Clyde Park Locale Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc picked off our vineyard at Clyde Park.  One batch was fermented cool in tank and the second was fermented at room temperature in old oak with some skin contact to build some weight and texture.  This is a fresh and textural rendition of Sauvignon Blanc.

 

A little about Clyde Park!

Clyde Park Vineyard was established in 1979 when the varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were planted on the property.
Further plantings since have increased the vineyard to 35 acres, expanding the original Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and adding Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. In all we have 7 clones of Pinot Noir, 6 clones of Chardonnay, 2 clones of Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc and a sole clone of Pinot Gris.

The site consists of undulating north easterly slopes. The soil varies from silt/clay to sandy loam with basalt over a limestone base. Plantings on our northeasterly slope provide exposure to sunlight, whilst the river flat area offers warmth and wind protection. Viticulturally the site produces the premium fruit of low yields providing balanced wines of great purity, complexity and finesse.
