MCGUIGAN BLACK LABEL SAUVIGNON BLANC, AUSTRALIA

Region:South Eastern Australia

Colour:Delicate green with lime hues

Aroma: Ripe tropical fruits of melon and mango with
herbaceous aromas of grass, capsicum and
asparagus.

Palate: This is a full-flavoured wine with the classic
characters of passionfruit, cut grass and hints of
peach. These great varietal flavours are perfectly
balanced with a clean and crisp feel and a zesty
lime finish.

Food: The clean, crisp characters of Sauvignon Blanc
make it a perfect accompaniment to lighter style
dishes particularly seafood and fresh pasta..

Notes: To get the best characters out of the Sauvignon
Blanc varietal minimal input from the winemaker
is necessary. The fruit was harvested in the cool
of the night and then crushed so the juice could
be clarified prior to fermentation.
The fermentation occurred in stainless steel vats
where a selected yeast strain was introduced to
further enhance the varietal fruit flavours and
aromas. Early bottling ensured the natural
freshness of this was captured ready to be
enjoyed.

Tech: Alc 12%
