Springfield Life From Stone Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Tasting Notes

One of our most requested Sauvignon Blancs, sourced from a vineyard that is predominantly quartz (70%), the vineyard produces wines that are a true expression of terroir and minerality, two of the more abused terms in the wine industry, but here true to form and one of the finest examples you will ever find. It’s the perfect warm weather wine with its lower alcohol (12.5%) and chiseled, stony, mineral infused fruit that finishes crisp and dry with noted persistence on the finish. For a wine that weighs in at 12.5% alcohol this is no shrinking violet and has serious mid-palate presence and depth. This has to be one of the better white wines for the season you will come across, it’s unique, scintillating and irresistibly delicious.

Life from Stone comes from a single parcel on quartz soils is a classic, so-called “thiol style” of Sauvignon Blanc, with sweat and passion fruit flavours, lots of acidity and freshness and impressive mid-palate texture. Consistently tasty. 2022-26

Winemaker Notes

Life from Stone derives its name from the incredibly rocky soils in which it is grown. Every year the vineyard battles against nature in order to produce highly concentrated, powerful wines with a flinty, mineral character true to the quartz rock in which it is grown. Monumental human effort was required to plant the vines – implements destroyed, and, in the case of the older vineyards, dynamite deployed. A true expression of the site’s terroir, this wine will drink well now, or can be enjoyed in the next 2-3 years.
