A quick swirl of the glass reveals a wine which is lively yet there's some creaminess in the mix. This is a result of 100% whole bunches, 100% wild yeast fermentation in old French oak, 55% malolactic fermentation, and it was aged for seven months. Apologies for going hard with the detail but this is where this Sauv steps out from the rest. Hands have got dirty making this wine.
Green melon, passion fruit and a drop of citrus float above the creaminess which runs unobstructed throughout. A moreish finish hangs on nicely. Very nicely in fact.
If only there was more Sauv Blancs like this out there.
