2018 Passel Estate Sauvignon Blanc MUSEUM
2018 Sauvignon Blanc
Margaret River, Western Australia
Museum Release: Partially fermented in new oak, this is a vibrant and beautifully balanced wine is developing in richness and complexity.
Winemaking Notes: Our Sauvignon Blanc fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning and immediately cold crushed to press, where the juice was separated from the skin. The juice was cold settled for 2-3 days before being racked and fermented in stainless steel and new French oak barrels (20%). The oaked portion was combined with the portion in stainless steel after fermentation, where the wine was matured on the fine lees with bâttonage occurring fortnightly for 5 months. The wine received a light fining prior to filtration and was then bottled with all-natural acidity.
