Awatere Flaxbourne Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Fortissimo – an opportunity to express my many experiences within New Zealand and France in particular Sancerre and Pouilly. The use of Cigar barrels extended skin contact and Lees stirring means the wine is very expressive and indeed, not subtle in any way.

A distinctive wine that is not intended to be subtle. It is expressive and reflects the influences of wild fermentation, lees stirring, and extra skin contact.

A wine of personality.
