Savagnin might be all of our favourite grape variety here at Everyday...
From the big man: "Brilliant gold like a sunrise, this 100% Savagnin comes from a gorgeous vineyard that has since suffered damage in the Adelaide Hills fires. Reductive and beeswaxy with extraordinary width on the nose but tight and restrained on the palate. The flavour is uncommon and luscious – like custard fruit, rock salt and grapefruit pith in the centre, finishing with homemade mandarin marmalade and a sweet lime tang.
The evolution of the winemaker is to take all experiences and inspirations and make them truly your own. For us that means that while we love super natural wines, to do them with heart we forever dance the line between careless and clean.
100% Savagnin, one month of skin contact, fermented in open concrete fermenter, neutral old French barrels for eight months."
NB: Not to be confused with Sauvignon, Savagnin is its own grape variety that typically hails from the Jura region (East of Burgundy in France) and is often made into an oxidative, Fino-sherry like style.
