2016 Lady A Sauvignon Blanc

Domaine A Lady A Sauvignon Blanc originates from ancient, cool climate
terroir in Tasmania’s historic Stoney Vineyard. It is a wine of absolute dedication, crafted according to a rigorous viticultural regime and uncompromising approach to winemaking.
The first vintage of Lady A was made in secret as a present for Ruth Althaus in 1996. Inspired by the famous oaked Sauvignon’s of Bordeaux, Lady A has earned a cult status reputation around the globe. It was described by James Halliday as being “the finest Oaked Sauvignon Blanc” he ever tasted.
Lady A is crafted in small batches from a single hectare plot at Stoney Vineyard. It hails from the oldest Sauvignon vines on the estate. Lady A is fermented in 100% new French oak barriques and matured on fine lees for one year. It is rested in the cellar for two further years or more until ready for release. We suggest cellaring the Lady A for up to ten years.

2016 Release: 

Yet another classic Lady A, it presents golden-lime in the glass, preceding a rich, opulent nose: lemon curd and vanilla bean, backed by a light, oatmeal-and-cedar wood note. On the palate it is generous, lush and dense. Sumptuous and fleshy, with nut, lemon and creaminess rolling throughout, it is structured but still subtle enough to avoid becoming overpowering. A bright finish lingers, suggesting chamomile, almond and nougat. Will drink wonderfully with seafood (shellfish, particularly). Best served this side of cold, it blossoms with a little air. Drink 2019-2030.
