White Wine - Perfect Day Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
The Karridale subregion is home to the finest Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Margaret River. Crisp higher natural acids; aromatic
citrus fruit profiles; extended slower ripening and more fruit intensity: what’s not to like?
Semillon has always colluded with Savvy. Our choice of Karridale Semillon is due to its powerful lemon pith midpalate and that
complements and extends the punchy Sauvignon profile. The Sauvignon Blanc is carefully hand leaf plucked to prevent sunburn and preserve acidity and freshness.
The 2021 vintage was cool and late; spring was windy, wet and stormy in Karridale which is not unusual. Combined with above
average yields and a summer that continued to witness regular wet weather, the growing season was more challenging than most.
Vineyard details were of utmost importance for the 2021 vintage. Those that did the work got the results, as I feel we did. All of the Semillon and 50% of the Sauvignon Blanc were pressed to old 500L puncheons for wild barrel ferment in cloudy juices. All
components were kept on their lees for 3 months enhancing texture and complexity.
The 2021 Perfect Day is tightly wound yet expressive. Punchy limeskin, bay leaf, grapefruit and guava fruit leaps from the
glass. The first sip shows the linear structure: citrus acidity with slight toasted hazelnut barrel ferment texture. Long and clean
finish is perfect for the upcoming summer. Perfect for necking with fresh Albrolhos sushimi
