Out Of Step Summerhill Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Out Of Step Summerhill Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Yarra Valley, Victoria   |    750ml   |    12.5%

Out Of Step is the Yarra Valley venture of David Chatfield and Nathan Reeves, who back in 2012 chose Sauvignon Blanc as their foundation variety - at a time the variety was arguably at its lowest point in popularity within the region. Over the ensuing years, Out Of Step has played a substantial role in re-defining Sauvignon Blanc within the Australian wine landscape, consistently producing interesting and complex single-vineyard offerings. 

This 2017 Summerhill Sauvignon Blanc is a standout from the current Out Of Step range;  this is hand-picked, pressed to barrel, wild fermented and matured in oak (5% new, 95% used French). The oak contributes texture and spice, while allowing the pristine, cool-climate fruit flavours to shine through.

An exceptional Australian Sauvignon Blanc with a depth and purity rarely found in this variety, this still has many years of enjoyment ahead of it. With an RRP of $34, we've secured limited stocks at the discounted price of $19.90 a bottle. 

"96 Points. Hand-picked, pressed direct to French oak (5% new) for wild fermentation, including partial mlf. There's no mucking around, this is in the heart of the Out of Step style, penetrating and complex, insisting you taste it (you won't be sorry), even if you don't like sauvignon blanc. It is racy, raw, and is real wine. 530 dozen made. Screwcap. 12.5% alc.To 2023. $34" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.
