Savage White 2020


Savage White returns to its roots as a traditional blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The Chenin component is now focussed entirely on ‘Never Been Asked To Dance’. Sourced from trellised and bush vines, the grapes were whole bunch pressed before undergoing spontaneous fermentation. Sauvignon Blanc takes the lead, the aromatics show a pronounced spicy, herby, savoury tinged array of waxy green apples, white citrus, clementine, honeyed chamomile and root fennel with subtle hints of dried fynbos and lanolin. The palate is masterfully rich and broad, coating all corners of the palate with intense, crystalline notes of spicy yellow grapefruit, freshly squeezed tangerines and white peach cordial. The acids are intense but wonderfully tangy adding to a real sense of textural harmony and mineral complexity. A very complete wine that races out the blocks and will undoubtedly give plenty of drinking pleasure immediately on release.
