Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Marlborough, New Zealand

$23.75 / each

Description:

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has become a bit of a tired category, however this small-production, sustainably grown example made by female winemaker Fiona Turner is anything but mundane. Grown super close to the coast in Marlborough, and showing exceptional, creamy minerality, this is a tropical expression of Sauvignon Blanc that delivers a mouthful of passion fruit, lychee, guava, mango, pineapple, and lime flavors.

Description:

This luscious blend of 90% Macabeu and 10% Muscat de Gra Petit was grown biodynamically on 45 year old vines in the Spanish region of Montsant. Broad and creamy, this wine shows great viscosity and richness without being heavy, and is quite tropical and exotic in style. You'll see lots of jasmine, honey, mango and pineapple on this wine, which was fermented with wild yeasts, aged for 3 months on its lees and bottled unfiltered.
