Giesen The August 1888 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2018)

Pronounced 'Aw-goost', the powerful, distinctive 2018 vintage (5*) was hand-picked at two sites in the Wairau Valley, and fermented and lees-aged in German oak fuders and seasoned French oak barriques. Weighty and fleshy, it has concentrated, tropical fruit flavours, showing excellent complexity, and a dry, rounded finish.
