Unoaked.

Colour

Dazzling, pristine green tinged straw.

Nose

Distinctive lifted fresh Sauvignon fruit purity, outrageous lift of grapefruit mixed with fragrant gooseberries. A burst of fresh, radiant almost incandescent scents of fizzing limes lemongrass, Thai mint and lemon rind.

Palate

Three dimensional and high impact, mouth-filling pithy grapefruit juice and fresh layers of mineral like flavour in the middle palate before a long zesty citrus tinged 'juicy fruit' finish.

Background

Whole bunches from our most distinctive Sauvignon Blanc vineyard - Bill & Vicki Borchardt's, in the heart of the Adelaide Hills, atop Teakle's Hill, Woodside were hand selected and picked on the 21st of February in the cool of early morning then destemmed in small batches without crushing the fruit. Gentle pressing followed. The free run juice was then fermented in small stainless steel tanks between 12 and 14 degrees Celsius. This Wishing Clock has a high level of natural acidity, (8.1 grams per litre) a pH of 3.07, and although bone dry an alcohol of only 12.5%. This 2015 Wishing Clock of the Adelaide Hills was bottled directly without fining with minimal filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard, a looking glass if you will, and is ready to drink immediately. Thanks Vicki and Bill, a wish come true.
