2017 Pennies from Heaven Sauvignon Blanc
A winery established by the Seppeltsfield and once owned by the famous Penfolds Estate, it is a winery rich in Australian winemaking history. It also has a heavy focus on sustainability and their wines are consistently awarded medals at wine shows throughout the world. The best part? Their wines are recognised for over-delivering on quality for their price point!
This wine is named in honour of the much cherished winter rains which fall like ‘pennies from heaven’, replenish our soils and allow the vines to flourish during the growing season.Whole bunches from our most distinctive Sauvignon Blanc vineyard were hand selected and picked in the cool of the early morning then destemmed without crushing the fruit. Gentle pressing followed and the free run juice was then fermented in small stainless steel tanks between 12 to 14 degrees Celsius, ensuring the lively white grapefruit flavours and aromas were retained. It was then bottled directly thereafter without fining and with minimal filtration to capture the purity of taste and texture.
