The Amphora Sauvignon Blanc forms part of our Projects Range. These are wines we can get geeky about - interesting, small runs, slightly quirky, but always delicious!
All fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented in clay amphorae and then aged for ten months. 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.
Textured and complex with orange blossom, blackcurrant leaf and a peaty smoke on the nose. The palate is full and layered; orange marmalade, green peppercorns and salted pistachios mingle with more blackcurrant against an edgy, wet stone mouthfeel.
