Mappinga Sauvignon Blanc 2013 ( 6 x 750mL), Adelaide Hills, SA.

The Sidewood Vineyard where the fruit is sourced for the Mappinga Art Series is situated at the 300 acre Ashwood Estate in the cool-climate of the Adelaide Hills wine region, 380m above sea level. Climate, soil, careful pruning techniques and hand-picking play a vital role to ensure that only the best fruit is produced for the Mappinga Art Series. With the rows of vineyards planted facing East - West, this ensures that combined with intensive canopy management the intensity of the fruit flavour profile will be enhanced.

Winemaker Tash Mooney carefully selects the best parcels of fruit from the vineyard, ensuring that the fruit is picked from the vineyard at precisely the right moment. After a lot of time spent walking up and down the vineyard checking to see if the flavours are right the fruit is then hand-picked once it has reached around 12° Baume. This oaked sauvignon blanc is carefully crafted in the winery. Grapes are hand sorted, whole bunch pressed and made from free run juice. The wine is barrel fermented and matured for ten months in 60% new and 40% old French Oak barriques.

Expert Reviews

"Hand-picked, whole bunches chilled for 1-2 days, then whole bunch pressed, the skins added back to free-run juice for 48 hours, then filtered for wild fermentation/maceration for 8 months in French oak (60% new). Inevitably a complex wine pushing the envelope far and wide, highly textured and structured a la White Bordeaux. The jury is out on one of those unusual sauvignon blancs needing time."

Rated 93 by James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion. (Mar/2015)

Winery Tasting Notes

Pale straw with a vibrant hue in colour, this unique barrel fermented wine has luxuriant flavours of nashi pear and passionfruit, with hints of apricot and vanilla. A lingering, herbaceous after taste, showing toast and green herbs, finishing with a divine citrus line. Time on lees gives a very creamy palate, generous complex and excellent definition.

Delightful to savour on its own and a great accompaniment with fragrant salads, fresh oysters or sushi and sashimi.
