Description

When the opportunity arose to make a barrel fermented Sauvignon with Marlborough producers Giesen we knew it was to good to turn down. But we didn't just want to put our own label on it, we wanted to be involved right from vineyard selection, fermentation and through to blending, all the while being guided by the masterful Winemaker Duncan Shouler. Old vine (18-20 YO) fruit was sourced from selected sites in the Southern Valleys where it was gently pressed and transferred into a seasoned Fuder Barrel (1000L German oak barrel). Natural yeasts kicked off fermentation before being inoculated, once fermentation finished the wine sat on full yeast solids and in oak for 8 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. This is not generic Marlborough Sav, this is premium Sauvignon at its best. the result is a complex, textural and concentrated Sauvignon that is very enjoyable on release but will continue to develop in the bottle for up to 5 years.

Smells

Powerfully aromatic with ripe tropical fruit notes of nectarine and peach underpinned by lime zest and freshly cut grass.

Tastes

Concentrated and complex with rich characters of stonefruit, citrus zest and kaffir leaf. The palate is textural and slightly creamy - hallmarks of barrel aging and lees contact. Enjoy with roast chicken or fresh seafood chowder.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
