Man O' War Gravestone Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon (2018)

The impressive 2018 vintage (5*) is a 3:1 blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, estate-grown on Waiheke Island and fully barrel-fermented. Bright, light lemon/green, it has a complex, ripely herbaceous bouquet. Mouthfilling, it is vibrantly fruity, with tropical-fruit flavours, finely integrated oak, and a long finish. A 'serious', very age-worthy wine, it's well worth cellaring to 2022+.
