"Fruit Bomb sees the same base wine used in Toil and Trouble fermented out until dry in tank and aged on lees for a further 6 months. After that we racked and bottled it. Thats pretty much it. It is still-ish, as we bottled with high dissolved carbon dioxide to give the wine a little crackle and to compensate for the fact the wine was bottled without any added sulphur dioxide. Because of its provenance and how early it was picked, it is not Sauvignon as you know it, in fact a number of wine professionals had to ask what variety it is. Instead, it is super fruity (think pineapple - as pictured on the label) with low acid but a lot of punch. It drinks more like a Pinot Gris or aromatic blend. That said it is transparent and vibrant - hence the name. It is literally just Sauvignon Blanc juice that is fermented and bottled."
