A laid back, thirst quenching, smooth and fruity South Australian white. This 50cl bottle with a crown cap closure is a bit of a departure from the norm and while it's not a wine that takes itself too seriously it's quite delicious nonetheless. The blend is 70% Semillon with 20% Sauvignon Blanc and a little Arneis and Petit Manseng and it has touches of quince and preserved lemon aromas that lead to a really zesty palate of citrus elderflower, stone fruits and almond. All four varieties that make up #V18W comes from the same, single vineyard close to our winery in Lenswood, Adelaide Hills. A close planted, premium vineyard perfectly set up for cool climate viticulture. Vertical shoot positioning on a 2 wire system, shoot and fruit thinning where necessary followed by hand picking for careful selection. A complex vinification in order to make a deliciously simple wine. Both the Sauvignon and Semillon are given 24 hours skin contact before crushing, pressing, settling and cool, fermentation. The Arneis and Petit Manseng were hand-picked, foot crushed, drained and added to the larger ferment which prolonged the ferment and added complexity and texture. Post primary fermentation, the wine was racked off gross lees before spending 2 months on fine lees prior to bottling.
