Product Description

Brilliant yellow golden straw. Hand-picked grapes are pressed and the juice run straight to 2 year old French puncheons (500l) for wild yeast fermentation and occasional battonage. Two puncheons produced around 100 dozen. Varietal characters dominate the subtle oak and lees notes here with dried mountain herbs, black currant bud, yellow guava and ripe grapefruit. Fresh and pure, almost a little closed still. Lovely texture from the barrel. Texture is something usually absent in dry Sauvignon from Marlborough. Very juicy and tightly focused palate. Pithy yellow tropical fruit and intense grapefruit with mineral edged acidity that draws a long bow. Very juicy grapefruit, mineral and currant bud finish. Both the texture and acidity to match quality cuisine. Would be perfect with white fleshed fish in beurre blanc or just plain fried.
