Six Bottles of The August 1888 Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Fruit from two iconic Giesen vineyards make up the The August 1888. Matthews Lane grapes add rich ripe tropical notes, steely, wet pebble aromas and purity. The organically managed and certified Dillons Point vineyard adds herbal notes, richness and structure. Hand picking of the fruit followed by wild fermentation contributes to the texture, depth, and length of the wine.

 

In totality this creates a Sauvignon Blanc with a tropical nose featuring passionfruit and lime leaves. Its multi-dimensional and layered with toasty almonds, fresh brioche and incredible flinty notes. Well-integrated oak provides complexity and elegance.

 

This attention to detail crafts a Sauvignon Blanc unlike any other; character-filled and complex, one that rewards cellaring.

 

Opening this Sauvignon Blanc makes every occasion special.
