Xabregas are all about fastidious vineyard management and exacting vinification techniques. There are no compromises in the pursuit to create the defintive Mt Barker Sauvignon Blanc. Artisan focuses on balancing the distinctive flavour profile of Sauvignon Blanc with the complexity of new oak, whilst maintaining structure over a fine boned acidity. The wine is treated to a laborious lees stirring batonage while it ages, barrel ferments contribute to the vigorous complexity and perfect integration of oak, striking the ultimate balance between vibrant fruit and artisanal styling
Vines are vertical shoot positioned and all harvesting is done at night to take advantage of cool temperatures. Fruit is harvested from separate blocks at different times to a schedule determined by ripeness and flavour. The aim is to capture and capitalize on the beautiful ripe flavours and low yields of Mt Barker Sauvignon Blanc. Grapes are processed immediately upon arrival at the winery, where they are treated to a firm pressing for the extraction of optimal flavour. The cold settled juices are fermented in a selection of new and seasoned oak for a few months. Upon completion, the batches are transferred to to tank for ten months maturation and a course of battonage on fine yeast lees. Alcohol 12.3%
TASTING NOTES
Opulent aromas, enticing with notes of gooseberry, mango and pawpaw, harmonising with nutmeg and cinnamon oak. A highly textural palate with subtle watercress flavours and mango fruit characters, underlying flavours of camembert and smoked cheddar are followed by a line of mouth watering acidity, finishing crisp and lingering.
