The grapes were picked and sorted by hand, whole cluster pressed and then naturally fermented in barrel. No malolactic fermentation was conducted in order to preserve all of its fruity, zesty character. All lots were aged separately on their lees for 9 months with gentle bâtonnage. Judicious blending of these lots composed a cuvée most representative of its terroir.
Intense and multi-layered, the bouquet and flavors are dominated by honeysuckle, hawthorn, gooseberry, lime, white flesh peach, pear and dried apricot, completed by elegant touches of acacia, white pepper, guava, quince and wet stone. The mouth feel is seamless. The strong mineral background, a stamp of the estate, counterbalances the overall richness, giving a superb refinement. The finish is layered, very long and elegant. Built to age, the Foppoli Sauvignon Blanc is truly art in the bottle.
