This is not your typical fruity “drink young” Sauvignon Blanc style. The aim with this wine was to make a more complex, interesting and age-worthy style using wild fermentation and old French oak barrels – the opposite winemaking techniques to those commonly used in the new world.
The nose shows interesting, complex mineral aromas and a touch of toast from the barrels, and glimpses of nectarine and pineapple.
The palate is creamy and textural, with soft grapefruit acid, and beautiful mouth feel and length of flavour.
This is a drier style, best enjoyed with food.
Most importantly, it is an intriguing, complex style to contemplate alongside a more youthful, fruity Sauvignon Blanc.
Drink now and over the next 3 years.
Enjoy with richer seafood.
