Spy Valley 2017 ‘E Block’ Sauvignon Blanc and ‘Single Estate’ Pinot Gris

22-May-2018

It has been noticeable that Spy Valley have taken a more informative, detailed and definitive stance on labelling their wines, giving more information as to the provenance. This is an important action to take as the world’s fine wine market is becoming more discerning and demanding in what they want to know. Here, I review a limited release ‘E Block’ Sauvignon Blanc 2017, from that specified plot, the fruit with such distinctive character that deserved to be bottled separately, and the ‘Single Estate’ Pinot Gris 2017, informing that the fruit is only from the company’s vines. Both wines incorporate partial fermentation in wood and lees contact to increase flavour and texture. Winemaker Paul Bourgeois and his team are achieving excellent results by also retaining varietal expression. www.spyvalleywine.com
