Bellbrae Estate

2017 Bellbrae Estate Southside Sauvignon Blanc

2017 Bellbrae Estate Southside Sauvignon Blanc

BACKGROUND

We have named our premium Bellbrae Estate wines after our acclaimed local surf breaks. Southside is a reliable left-hand reef break at the southern end of Bells Beach near Torquay, especially at high tide.

 

TASTING NOTES

The Southside grapes came from our best patch on the Great Ocean Road. The fruit flavours are bright  and display fresh notes of citrus and elderflower. We ran a quarter of the juice into French oak, where it completed fermentation and developed wood spice and vanilla characters. This elegant style will mature softly losing some of its new vintage bite and will drink well over the next 2-4 summers.

Matured for 5 months in new and 1 year old water bent, French oak barriques, it has had regular battonage (lees stirring) to encourage a soft, creamy texture from yeast breakdown. Coupled with a soft oak tannin, this wine has many layers that will integrate over time and reward the patient with depth and complexity.
