Deliciously dry and astringent
One is always safe with a low-alcohol New Zealand Sauvignon. This is a properly rounded, developed and deeply flavourful Sauvignon, with no allowance needing to be made for the lower alcohol level. It’s fabulously dry and astringent with flavour notes described in various reviews as sage, oregano, black pepper, nettle, ginger, lime zest, sweet pea, oatmeal, mango, gooseberry and many more. It’s created from a careful selection of grapes from five different sites and the result is bright, lively and vibrant. It’s not quite so strong on the acidic fruit tastes; I don’t get the classic cat pee/blackcurrant leaf taste of some Marlborough Sauvignons; the top notes lean more towards tropical fruit, green apple and certain spiciness. It’s a fabulous drink, with bucketsful of flavour and proper serious Sauvignon taste. Buy, buy, buy.
WinemakingHarvested from selected sites that expressed flavour ripeness at low Brix levels. Gentle juice extraction, cold settled and fermented in stainless steel tanks with a range of aromatic yeasts. A portion of the wine went through malo lactic fermentation to soften and add weight to the palate.
