    75% Sauvignon blanc, 25% Semillon

    Savage White is made up of three vineyard sites grown in a combination
    of sandstone and granite soils. Elevation of the sites ranges from 213m
    to 677m above sea level with a combination of trellised and bush vine

    Grapes are given a fair amount of sun exposure through the season to
    ensure ripe fruit is processed. Overnight cooling is followed by whole
    bunch pressing and oxidative handling. The juice is transferred to a
    selection of 500L barrels (20% new) and concrete eggs where
    spontaneous fermentation and aging takes place. Malolactic
    fermentation takes place in the Semillon and occasionally the Sauvignon
    blanc depending on the vintage. Wines are aged for 12 months in barrel
    and concrete followed by a further 2-3 months in stainless steel, and
    finally bottling.

    The warmer vintage conditions have resulted in a slightly more fruit
    forward wine than was the case in 2021. Blackcurrant leaf, pineapple,
    pear and grapefruit backed by subtle wood spice. The palate is tightly
    wound with characteristic salinity, texture and length. A wine that will
    continue to reward over the next 10 years.
