Sassy Sauvignon ’18 – Single bottle
A very different spin on New Zealand Sauvignon blanc. Approximately; 30% is neutral barrel-fermented with full juice solids, 30% is fermented 28 days on skins, 30% is carbonic fermented and pressed to amphora, and 8% is barrel-fermented Chardonnay with 4% Gewurztraminer. 11% alc.
Colour: Slightly opaque, rich orange-gold.
Nose: Intense, with aromas of gooseberries, quince, green beans and citrus fruits.
Taste: Dry and medium-bodied, the palate is a fusion of gooseberries, citrus fruit, with notes of quince, herbs and toasted hazelnuts.
Palate: No oak. Instead, you’ll find light phenolic textures with fresh acidity. An animated wine with a lasting finish.
