Let us drink to another stellar wine joining the Harry Hartman repertoire. This time with a wine that celebrates Summer, the label alone will make you pick up the bottle and slowly turn it to enjoy the swallows flying into the picture. The textured label is also a subtle hint to the wild fermented style of Sauvignon Blanc, which will already trigger the imagination and expectation of something a little different. Sourced from the Cape South Coast, there is a brightness to the fruit, indicating a cooler climate. The wine is nuanced with a peppery character, white tea, lemongrass notes, and lovely citrus aromas. Freshly poured, the wine paints a picture of a basket filled with freshly picked kiwi and yellow plums. The fruit is clean and welcoming, backed with a perpetual herbaceous note that blows off as the wine evolves in your glass, leaving a more delicate floral perfume. Gastronomists will also enjoy the pleasant austerity that introduces layers of almond skin and forest floor.

Harry Hartman Summer Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2020 upon tasting the wine, that almond skin character persists with a briny texture and taut acidity leaping over your palate. Reminiscent of the label that served as the wine’s first introduction, it’s also got the lightness of morning mist precipitating on wet soil. Don’t expect pronounced tropical fruit, but revel in its salt-specked character that would make a perfect pairing with white chocolate, ushering the shy fruit to the fore. A wild ferment often invites unusual aromas, toning the pungent lemongrass aromas with hints of spice and a creamy note of old-fashioned lemon candy. Less intervention elevated this wine, and it exudes the same energy of the bird on its label, inviting you to languish in its uninhibited nature.
