Mulline Sutherlands Creek Fume Blanc 2022
Fan’s of Bordeaux Blanc, vintages of Domaine A Lady A and textured Sauvignon Blanc’s look no further, this is a wonderful expression of this style. Bordeaux clone of Sauvignon Blanc. Soils of Grey and Brown Loam with Fragmented Granite. Hand picked, foot stomped and left for 18 hours on skins.Then pressed into barrel of which 30% is new oak from Austria, the rest in seasoned French oak. Wild ferment on full solids but no less stirring, sulphured after primary fermentation to prevent malolactic, 8 months elevage. Ben highlighted his appreciation of Austrian oak – low toast, very tight grain, doesn’t soak as much wine as French, subtle, keeping aromatics.
