New Zealand Sauv Blanc is world- famous for being fruit forward, pungent and primary, but when grown in Hawke’s Bay it’s limey, grape-fruity, chalky, salty, layered and, well, down right delicious!
Fermented wild in barrel and aged on lees, the wine carries a nectarine, grapefruit and mineral swagger with a salt and lime crunch.
No full frontal fruity sucker punch to the nose, it’s a wine opulent in texture and complex on the palate…not what you’d think, but way more than you’d expect…it’s all smoke and mirrors!
