Singlefile Wines Single Vineyard Fumé Blanc 2015

A new winery to me from the west. The sophisticated label caught the eye as did the weighty bottles.

Fifty percent of this Sauvignon Blanc saw French oak (20% of which was new).

Youthful and energetic snow pea and grassy characters seem to be subdued by some Ritalin in the form of creamy oak. The barrel work has done the job tempering the fruit nicely. A faint hint of pineapple husk also seems restrained. The mouth is coated generously with a pinch of spice riding a long finish. Great drinking.

Enjoy over the next few years.

Very good.
