Wine.comThirty percent of this wine was barrel fermented and aged for five months, in one and two year old French barriques, before bottling on 7th October 1999. This is a fine example of the powerful, complex style of Sauvignon Blanc for which the Hawkes Bay region is acclaimed. A mouthfilling wine, it has rich, ripely herbaceous flavours, a subtle seasoning of French oak and a slightly creamy texture. It will mature well, but is delicious in its youth.
