Misha's Vineyard The Starlet Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc (2020)

The very lively 2020 vintage (4*) was estate-grown at Bendigo, in the Cromwell Basin. Hand-harvested, it was mostly handled in tanks, but 32 per cent of the blend was fermented with indigenous yeasts in seasoned French oak casks. From a very cool but low-yielding season, it is freshly scented, mouthfilling, vibrantly fruity and dry, with good intensity of tropical fruit and herbaceous flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity, and a crisp, tightly structured finish. Best drinking 2022.
