Auntsfield ‘South oaks’ Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Southern Valleys Marlborough
Complex bouquet with a varietal signature of citrus and herbs then a tropical fruit layer then barrel ferment aromas of toasted honey and some spicy cashew, a creamy-like lactic note emerges as well. On the palate – a lot of texture, vibrancy and flavour with citrus peel, spice, cashew, apple and stony minerality. Long finish, dry, the core of fruit and intensity lingers. Great balance and length. Drink now and though 2025.
