About the Wine

A Brave New release from Brave New Wine. Andries and Yoko take their first swing at Sauvignon Blanc here, with the typically tongue-in-cheek name of Batard Sauv.

There's plenty of work behind the scenes to elevate this beyond your standard Sauv affair. Nineteen days on skins followed by time in ceramic egg and a dash of influence from a thin veil of flor. The ripe and succulent fruit funkified and overflowing with juicy character.

Only 75 dozen made.

About Brave New Wine

It is a Brave New World and these are, in every sense, Brave New Wines. This range is brought to you by husband and wife duo Andries and Yoko Lüscher-Mostert. They are making painfully small amounts of fascinating, experimental and delicious wine from some superb vineyards in Great Southern.

With a vision of acquiring their own vineyard in the future, they are currently content to make wines that truly thrill them. These are natural wines crafted without additions but with bucket-loads of love and skill. Some of the most intriguing vino in WA and definitely a winery to keep an eye on.

About Great Southern

The Great Southern is the largest wine region in the country. Though more and more, the label “Great Southern” is becoming redundant. It is the sub-regional exploration of terroir which is distinguishing this region. From Frankland River to Porongorup, from Mount Barker to Denmark, the detailed and stylish wines emerging from these sub-regions are some of the most intriguing in the country.

No longer a “poor man’s Margaret River”, whether you love Riesling, Cabernet, Shiraz or Pinot, this stunning cool climate region will blow you away with the value and refinement inherent in everything it produces. And the good thing is, it is only getting better.

Additional Info

Harvested relatively ripe because let’s face it – the last thing the world needs is another ‘gooseberry cat’s piss’ sauvignon blanc. Wild fermented on skins for 19 days then basket pressed and raised in ceramic egg for under flor for 5 months before being bottled with no fining or filtration.

ABV : 13%
