The Hunting Lodge, Lighter Waimauku Sauvignon Blanc (2017)

A punchy little number, the 2017 vintage (3*) was hand-picked and mostly handled in tanks; 20 per cent of the blend was barrel-fermented. Light (9.5 per cent alcohol) and lively, it has strong, herbaceous aromas and green capsicum-like flavours, dryish (5 grams/litre of residual sugar) and crisp.
