Zesty, fresh, pristine.
Fermented and aged (maturation was 6 months) in stainless, foudre and neutral barrique, don't expect this Sauvignon Blanc to be anything like what you would expect from Marlborough. It's definitely Old World leaning with a BC backbone--a true expression of site as Blue Mountain claims. It was fermented in and then aged in stainless, neutral oak and foudre for five months before bottling. Honeyed notes are woven with gooseberry and crunchy orchard fruits, lemon curd and mineral. That minerality is echoed on the palate, it oasts snappy lime and crisp white fruit flavours. Pristine and racy with a zesty and mouthwatering finish.
