Wine Note

Man O'War 'Gravestone'

International Wine Challenge 2018 95 pts
New Zealand Sauvignon Semillon Trophy
"Smoky minerality on the nose. Dense mid-palate with tangy, grassy citrus fruit and a touch of tropical melon. Poised, precise finish with great length."
65% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Semillon
Aged 10% in second fill French oak, 90% in older oak. Wild yeast fermented. The palate is fresh with vibrant acidity balanced by weight and texture from the barrel fermentation and a long persistent finish.
Fermentation in oak barrels and puncheons by wild yeast gives a more rounded, silky texture to the wine which is not a common New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc characteristic. Great wish sushi, sashimi, smoked salmon etc.
