This Sauvignon Blanc provides an excellent alternative to Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs. Maturing 50% of the wine in oak has produced a lovely well rounded wine with an extra something. You cannot mistake it’s pronounced aromas of honeyed, green grassy herbaceousness with a hint of nettles and floral notes for anything but Sauvignon Blanc. Nor can you miss the appley crispy acid and intense Granny Smith, grass, and stonefruit flavours, but the slightly nutty finish is that added dimension from the oak coming through.
