Church Road McDonald Series Hawke's Bay Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc (2018)

Currently on sale, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) is a weighty, complex, non-herbaceous style of Sauvignon Blanc, partly (33 per cent) fermented with indigenous yeasts in old oak barriques. Bright, light yellow/green, it is mouthfilling and concentrated, with youthful, ripe tropical-fruit flavours, integrated oak, fresh acidity, and obvious potential. Best drinking mid-2021+.
