Auntsfield South Oaks Barrel Fermented Southern Valleys Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2019)

Still unfolding, the powerful 2019 vintage (5*) is a single block wine, estate-grown on the south side of the Wairau Valley and barrel-fermented. Bright, light lemon/green, with slightly biscuity aromas, it is a weighty, fleshy wine with ripe, tropical fruit flavours, finely integrated oak adding complexity, and a dry, very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2022+.
