Honeycomb Corner 2020 Sauvignon Blanc
Bright pale straw with a green hue, lifted aromatics of passionfruit, guava and white flowers. A juicy, fresh and vibrant palate, full of citrus fruit and tropical notes. Zesty acid draws the wine through to a long, delicate finish.

The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to retain the fresh, clean varietal characters of Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit was crushed and pressed, with the juice settled under cool conditions before being racked off the lees and fermented under temperature control to ensure the varietal Sauvignon Blanc characters are preserved. The wine was then fined, filtered and sent to bottle showcasing the perfectly crisp, clean aromas and flavours of a Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc.
Vintage 2020 was a warm and dry vintage, however, a wetter than average winter set us up well for this. The growing season started off with a warm spring followed by a hot summer, we did get one significant rain event in late February, which slowed down the reds and allowed for ripening of tannin and flavour to catch up with sugars. The warm and dry conditions reduced disease pressure, and we had ample marri blossom around the district, so we didn’t have the bird pressure of 2019. Yields were low across the board, but on the upside, this resulted in excellent quality with concentration of flavour across all varieties.
