Ken Forrester Sauvignon Blanc 2011

This wine shows lovely complexity with mix of tangy grassy notes, fig leaf, and peach and nectarine nuances. Brisk acidity with minerality on the palate which is typical of the long hang time in our cool region.

Very good while preparing a meal on the patio. Ideal with fish, chicken and pasta and friends.

Extended lees contact after fermentation for about 8 weeks to increase "creamy" character. Juice/wine handled reductively throughout process.
