2020 Worlds Apart Hope Forest Sauvignon Blanc
Lovely Louis Schofield is an Adelaide wine darling, a jack of all trades and master of most. He got his start at the city's most reputable wine retailer, East End Cellars, before going to work with the late Taras Ochota. Amidst this, he opened a wine bar, Hellbound, which is a haunt of the local wine industry. Across his pursuits he has a keen understanding of craft and consumer, placing wines in a great little pocket of the Aussie winemaking portfolio. Not farming his own fruit as yet, but works hand in hand with incredible growers across the state who prioritise sustainability.
Biodynamically grown in the Brackenwood vineyard in the Hills, who you may recognise for their lovely botanically inclined labels. Fruit was picked, crushed, destemmed and fermented on skins, then pressed to old oak. Lots of texture here from much lees stirring and a lack of filtration. On the nose and in the palate it is all tropical fruit, wax and flowers.
