Balgownie Estate

2016 Black Label Sauvignon Blanc

2016 Black Label Sauvignon Blanc

Balgownie has been producing Sauvignon Blanc since 2009 from vineyards situated near Yarra Junction where the climate is cool and perfectly suited to producing delicate wines with intense fruit flavours. The 2016 vintage Sauvignon Blanc has an intriguing and intense nose of lime, gooseberry, kiwi fruit, green mango, and a touch of grassy, herbaceous character. With its dry finish if matches beautifully with seafood, prawns of spicy dishes.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A beautiful Sauvignon Blanc nose with an intriguing and intense nose of lime, gooseberry, kiwi fruit, green mango, and a touch of grassy, herbaceous character. The intense fruit flavour on the palate is balanced by the crisp acidity leading to a long dry finish.
Vineyard Notes
2016 vintage was mild and warm in the Yarra Valley, a beautiful ripening season. Two clones of Sauvignon Blanc were harvested in separate passes to preserve the fresh vibrant fruit characters along with richer tropical notes and natural acidity.
Winemaker Notes
The free run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a very cool temperature over six week period to maintain the fresh fruit and the lively crisp acid character. Bottling occurred soon after vintage to maintain freshness.
Food Pairing Notes
Miso-glazed salmon.
