Moss Brothers Moses Rock Sauvignon Blanc 2022
One of the more impressive Savvys to have come across the tasting bench for some time, this was harvested in the cool of the early morning and handled as carefully as is possible, fermentation was a controlled cool one, with cultured yeasts. A small portion of the pressings are fermented in oak, with native yeasts which are then blended back into the wine, which increases the complexity.
A very pale yellow, this Savvy is absolutely chockers with delightful tropical notes – passionfruit, mango and guava. There are spices, orange notes, a pleasing ripeness and a fine minerally backing which will utterly delight fans of the variety. Decent length here and the flavours/wine never loses its intensity. A joy now, but will age well for at least a few years.
