3 750ml bottles of HALCYON DAYS KOTARE 2020 10.5% Alc
Blend: Sauvignon Blanc (20% skins, 80% whole bunch fermented) + whole bunch Gewurztraminer + whole bunch pressed Pinot Noir
Sauvignon Blanc, a grape with great acidity, line and vibrant fruit. We loved the texture and structure the whole bunch element gave the wine in 19 so have upped the whole bunch for 2020. Fermented on skins and stems with a bit of Gewurztraminer, subjected to regular light hand-plunging, pressed, then aged on lees for six months. The warmer year has produced more generosity of fruit in the palate compared to more austere 19.
