Church Road McDonald Series Hawke's Bay Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc (2019)

Offering great value, the 2019 vintage (5*) is a top example of its style. Estate-grown and hand-picked in the Redstone Vineyard, in the Bridge Pa Triangle, it was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for nine months in seasoned French oak barrels. Ripely scented and mouthfilling, it has rich passionfruit and lime flavours, gently seasoned with oak, good complexity, balanced acidity and a dry finish. Open and expressive, it’s drinking well now.
