A New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that has aged beautifully with more toasty, complexity than usual.
Grassy, fruity, crisp Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand are not everyone’s preference. However, we had the opportunity to try this wine with beautiful age and would highly recommend its long, toasty finish. Complete with barrel-fermentation, this wine has more complexity then expected.
