  • Amphora Sauvignon Blanc 2023

    Whole bunch pressed and 100% wild fermented in clay amphorae. Aged for seven months on gross lees without any additions, with minimal SO2 additions just before bottling. Locally made, these amphorae have been developed over ten years of trial and error. Ranging in sizes - between 500L and 860L - they are porous, with no lining inside, allowing for the perfect amount of micro-oxidation during maturation.

     A vintage that is somehow both edgier and more broadly yellow fruited, with a leesy, slightly reductive note bringing complexity. The nose shows a strong line of blackcurrant leaf against limes and green banana. The palate is creamy and mouth-coating but finely cut into by the grape’s lively acidity. Clearly Sauvignon, but far from typical.
