Winery Tasting Notes
The wild fermentation in oak barriques tricks the uninitiated into thinking this is going to be a smorgasboard of fleshy stone fruit with just a hint of the expected capsicum and herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc characters. The oak
fermentation has also imparted some coconut spice, and there are hints of butterscotch.
Sauvignon Blanc however, returns in force to electrify the palate entry with the fresh fruity “zingyness” synonymous Marlborough Sauvignon, leaving the palate cleansed and excited for more. This wine is tight, yet complex, elegant, yet expressive of the winemaking techniques.
The 2011 Moorlands Sauvignon Blanc will improve with 4 months aging following the bottling date. From there the wine will open up to reveal its inner self. Serve lightly chilled with seared fish steaks or pork slices. Enjoy!
