Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc
Our best Vintage yet – 2019 gifted us with warm, dry growing conditions, delivering perfect fruit loaded with both concentration and juicy acidity.
This is Savvie but not as you may know it! We’ve taken the iconic NZ variety ripened on some of the oldest Sauv. Blanc vines in the country and let it express itself.
With no winemaker intervention during fermentation except for the provision of French oak barriques, the result is layers of complexity and a wild edge.
Pungent and smoky with dried sage, tropical and citrus fruit aromas dominate the nose. The palate reveals grilled pineapple and green mango flavours with a generous helping of savoury, toasty oak. A thin line of pure minerality runs the length of this wine while chalky acidity delivers poise and tension to the palate.
Expect more richness and texture to develop with some time in bottle.
This is the Savvie for Chardonnay drinkers.
