This Nelson winery’s Fume Blanc is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes sourced from a small selection of their best cuvees that came in over the vintage.
Ferments were carried out in a selection of older French oak barrels and some new oak barrels to add complexity and the resulting wine has ripe flavours of gooseberry and citrus fruit rounded out by toasty earthy nuances, lending it fabulous depth and length. The wine does not undergo any fining making it vegan friendly and it is capable of ageing which will give it greater complexity.
"Beautifully composed and styled, this oak-aged sauvignon shows lifted aromas of nectarine, green rockmelon, snow pea and lime zest aromas with a hint of oatmeal complexity. The palate is wonderfully weighted and intensely flavoured, delivering loads of tasty flavours backed by bright acidity"
