This is not your typical Sauvignon Blanc. Inspired by wines of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation in France, barrel fermented in old French oak and aged on lees for 7 months. Allowing the yeast autolysis to give spice, complexity and a soft luscious texture. The style of Fumé Blanc gives the wine elegance and interest from barrel fermentation, while the classic fresh and tropical fruit varietal characters remain.
"Very ripe - tangerine, kumquat and greengage, rolling along a pungent track of moderate acidity and a lees-inflected mineral twang. A bit smoky, but sublimated by the fruit while adding to the sense of time and place." - 91 Points, Ned Goodwin MW, The Wine Advocate
