Eaton Thistle Hill Flaxbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2018)

The 2018 vintage (4*) is rare – only 378 bottles were produced. A single-vineyard wine, it was hand-picked in southern Marlborough, barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts and oak-aged for 11 months. Pale gold, it is less vibrant than most of the region's Sauvignon Blancs, but weighty, with ripe tropical-fruit flavours, showing good concentration and complexity.
