Born & Raised - Sauvignon Blanc 2017 – Sunbury Victoria
|Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc|
|Asian, spicy food, seafood|
This is a Sauvignon Blanc fermented on skins. This simply means we’ve made it a bit like a red wine. Rather than running off the fresh pressed juice and fermenting only that, we crushed the grapes then put everything into the tank, skins and all and let it do its thing.
The result is a wine that is full of texture in the mouth, with ginger, elderflower, lemongrass, and white grapefruit aromatics that gently give way to more traditionally Savvy aromas.
Great with Asian and spicy food, although seafood is its fave partner in crime.
Born & Raised Wines brings you the finest in small batch, alternative Australian wine styles.
They source fruit from Heathcote and surrounds to produce unique examples of Nebbiolo, Tempranillo, Sangiovese and other highly drinkable grape derived beverages.
I blame my father. 35 years ago he went to a wine tasting evening class, there was not enough people to hold the course, so he and a few others started their own. They’ve been tasting wine every Wednesday since.
That was what I was born into, a family that pretty much centered around the table. Or to be precise the fridge. Food and wine were all part of the experience. Very little has changed.
Having traveled the world and studied winemaking, viticulture and wine business in 2012, I decided to get out from behind the corporate desk and continue with the fun part, winemaking and sharing the results with others. That’s me, David Messum – Winemaker/Owner/Purveyor of Wines from the Other Side.
Born & Raised is based on the simple premise that good things should be shared, you don’t need to follow the herd and that it’s ok to be different. Born & Raised Wines embodies the things I love about wine so much, diversity, great people, sociability and above all having a good time.
We’re only here for a short time, better make it count and drink some good booze along the way.
