2023 Mount Fishtail Sauvignon Blanc Sur Lie

New 2023 vintage!
2023 Mount Fishtail Sauvignon Blanc Sur Lie...$16.99
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Made Sur Lie method - "Sancerre style"

(5/5 Stars) Fabulously aromatic on the nose showing crunchy apple, kiwifruit, passionfruit and lemon peel, followed by an intensely flavoursome palate offering excellent fruit power and persistency. It’s intense and concentrated with classical varietal characters that linger with loads of delectable flavours.
Rated 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A rather refined sauvignon blanc with freshness and minerality with some crushed stone. Medium-bodied. Creamy. Polished and flavorful. More like a Loire white. Drink now. Screw cap.
Rated 91/100 James Suckling
