It’s quite different from other Sauvignons – it’s not like a French or New Zealand variety it can only be described as wonderfully Cornish.

WINEMAKING NOTES:

In 2016 John Coulson, owner and winemaker at Polgoon, announced that he’d be planting 2,500 Sauvignon Blanc vines up in the vineyard.  It raised a few eyebrows, there’s not much Sav Blanc grown in England and a Cornish Sauvignon Blanc was unheard of! Three years on and after a legendary fruit harvest in 2018, Polgoon has produced its very first bottle of single estate, single variety Sauvignon Blanc.  It’s quite different from other Sauvignons – it’s not like a French or New Zealand variety – it has unique characteristics of it’s own, which means it can only be described as wonderfully Cornish.  Elly Owens, head sommelier at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall says: “On the nose this wine is lively with notes of lime, passion fruit and pineapple. On the palate it’s crunchy fresh, green apple and tropical fruits with a distinctly Cornish minerality provided by the granite based soil at Polgoon.” In March 2019, prior to launch, the wine was entered into the Independent English Wine Awards (IEWA).  Entering a wine for an award is always a little nerve-wracking for the winemaker John Coulson, but it’s especially nail-biting when it’s produced from a new crop variety.  “We thought it was good, but would 24 independent judges, including some Masters of Wine, agree? ” They did, and the wine won a GOLD.
