Shapeshifter - 2019 White Sauvignon Blanc
A side project by one of the most benevolent humans around – Andy Burchell of Good Intentions Wine Co. This Shapeshifter white is ultra fresh and cleansing; like a breeze of forest air. 100% Savvy B from Andy's organically farmed vineyard, growing in the rich limestone volcanic soils of Mount Gambier. Grapes were handpicked and left overnight on skins before being pressed and wild fermented – part in barrel, part in stainless. Then stored in aged French oak on full lees for 8 months before being bottled without fining or filtration and very minimal sulphites added (max 20ppm). Super playful with a greeness, creaminess and subdued tropicals like pineapple skin. It embodies that feeling of swimming nude in a waterhole on a sweltering day, y'know?
