2020 Mappinga Fume Blanc

This unique, barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc is crafted from individually selected vines from our Mappinga Road estate. Handpicked and using only free-run juice, the wine is barrel fermented for eight months in 30% new and 70% one year old French oak puncheons.  Lifted aromatics and luxuriant mouth-filling flavours of mandarin, sea spray and lime peel with a hint of honeysuckle. This complex wine spent extended time on lees creating a creamy texture, balanced by a lively clean citrus line of vibrant acidity. The wine is well balanced, layered and has a long and complex finish accentuated by minerals, exotic spice and chalky notes. Production was limited to a handful of special barrels. Drinking beautifully now but will continue to evolve for the next five years.
