Dirty Black Denim - 2018 Sunbury Sauvignon

 

Straight up, this wine smells like Pashiona (in a great way, of course). So sniffable! In the mouth, mellow tropical flavours mingle with a greeness and creaminess, concluded with something like a chewed paddle pop stick. Really cool stuff from Tim and Lawrence Scanlon.

"Love this wine, but it was a real pain to get to bottle. Couple of days on skins, pressed to old wood for ferment. Racked off lees, back to barrel, where it sat for another 23 months. This wine just took ages for the fruit to calm down and find balance, but we’re so thrilled with where it’s at. 120 dozen bottled." – DBD
