Dandelion Wishing Clock Sauvignon Blanc is grown in the heart of the Adelaide Hills. Harvested atop Charleston in the 3rd week of March in the cool of early morning. The fruit was destemmed, crushed and gently pressed.
Free run juice was then fermented in small stainless steel tanks between 11 and 14 degrees celsius. This Wishing Clock natural acidity, low pH, and alcohol of only 12.0% is light and dry.
Dandelion Wishing Clock Sauvignon Blanc was bottled directly with minimal filtration and no fining to capture the essence of the vineyard. A looking glass if you will, and is ready to drink immediately.
Colour: Hues of pale straw and hay. White clear bright.
Nose: Pert and pleasantly strident. Spearmint and gooseberry and subtle citrus zest, freshly grated. Lime, mandarin, red grapefruit skin and flesh. Aromatically aromatic.
Palate: Here is found a mineral and rain water texture and mouthfeel. Long and lean yet with a hidden, swirling, tidal fruit depth that never reveals itself. Balanced by keen acidity and kept lush by ripe citrus fruit flavours. Favourably fleeting and fleetingly forgiving. Precise and varietally definitive.
