2018 Arfion Snowflake Savagnin (Magnum - 1.5L)
Notes from winemaker Dave Mackintosh:
The fruit was destemmed and spent a night on skins before being pressed directly to old puncheons on full solids. Natural ferment took over and progressed at warm temperatures, through to full malo and interaction with oxygen. It progressively got better and better as it matured and developed great flavour, creaminess and structure. Not fruit aroma but a nice savoury styling without bruised apple. Topped but not sulphured for 10 months. No adds apart from a tiny amount of sulphur pre bottling. One rack before bottling with no fining or filtration. Just over a year in bottle before release.
