We bottle this wine in a clear Bordeaux shaped bottle so you can see how clean and vibrant the wine is. You can also see from the colour that it’s unoaked. This is the way we like Sauvignon Blanc; fragrant with classic hints of gooseberry and citrus fruit with an herbal note on the finish. We chose to use a screwcap on this wine to signal that we believe this wine is best enjoyed young.
Vineyard Manager's Notes
The grapes for this wine were sourced exclusively from our vineyards. We hand select the fruit as it is being picked to make sure only top quality grape bunches are used. We choose fruit from several of our different vineyards; silty, mineral rich soils from those located in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation and some from the heavier clay-based soils from the St. David’s Bench sub-appellation to add depth and character. All the while making sure we are farming our vineyards responsibly and sustainably, like we have done since 1978.
Bosc Family Food Pairings
Sauvignon Blanc has gained popularity over the past couple of years. We think it’s because it’s fresh and easy drinking but the zip of acidity also makes it a versatile food wine. Our Sauv Blanc is a great example of this style. It works well with salads topped with vinaigrettes as well as simple oysters on the half shell.
