One of of our favourite Sauvignons in the whole shop and there is a lot to choose from!
A ripe and full, varietally correct smelling savvy but quite sweet in the palate with the richness of dried tropical fruit in the pineapple, papaya spectrum underpinned by more classically varietal gooseberry and summer herb flavours with angelica and even a tinge of fresh spearmint coming through. Good citrus acidity balances the sweet fruit and the lengthy finish is fruity and flavoursome. A smidgen of oak and wild yeast adds complexity and as it sits in the glass the aromas become more pungent. Produced by Cloudy Bay's ex-winemaker and vineyard manager.
