Hans Herzog Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Barrel Fermented Sur Lie (2018)

Outside the regional mainstream, the distinctive, light gold 2018 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and hand-picked on the north side of the Wairau Valley, then fermented and matured for 18 months in French oak puncheons. Weighty and fleshy, it has concentrated, ripe tropical fruit flavours, oak richness, a vague hint of honey and a long, dry, well-rounded finish. Certified organic.
