    2021 Hochkirch Blanc (Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc)

    • $38.00
    • $0.00


    2020 was a very cool growing season in Henty, and so the fruit for the blanc wasn't picked until the very end of March. After a hand-harvest, it was destemmed to large open vats (40% whole bunch) for a wild ferment. After this was complete, it was pressed to tank to settle, then racked to old French puncheons with fine lees. Natural malo was in spring, and the wine was finally assembled about 11 months after harvest, then racked to bottle just before it's first birthday.

    Skin contact gives pale yellow colour. Edgy wet stone phenolics with sweet floral hint on nose. Surprising palate weight with tension between pronounced minerality and bright lively acid leading to floral and honey hints at the back.

    No SO2, no adds whatsoever.
