Bellbrae Estate

Bellbrae Estate Southside Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Bellbrae Estate Southside Sauvignon Blanc 2016

BACKGROUND

We have named our premium Bellbrae Estate wines after our acclaimed local surf breaks. Bird Rock is named after the free standing rock between the reef and the shore off Jan Juc, near Torquay. Great peak waves that produce a short but excellent ride when its pumping.

 

TASTING NOTES

Produced entirely from our 1 hectare Sauvignon Blanc vineyard which has been cane pruned for the past 4 years, the 2016 harvest produced some winderfully intense fruit –just what we were looking for. Hand picked in the cool Atumn mornings, the fruit was whole bunch pressed to obtain the clearest juice we could possibly get within hours of picking. A cool fermentation followed, initially in tanks, but then transferred at about halfway to 2 & 3 year old French barriques. Once fermentation completed, the resultant wine was left ' Sur Lees' (upon lees) and stirred fortnightly  for 6 months. What eventuated was a lively, lifted wine but with a texture and creaminess not often found in Sauvignon Blanc. A wine that will be best accompanied with rich, asian foods and will reward the patient amongst us.
