SKU: MIHASAUV20
Take a walk on the wild side. Wild yeast fermented and matured in both new and one to 5 year old French oak hogsheads to create a complex, textural and more savoury style of Sauvignon Blanc. John Harris is a great proponent and creator of Fumé-style Sauvignon Blanc and has crafted a wine that is sure to please both traditional 'Sauv Blanc' lovers and those who tend to favour generally more oak influenced varieties such as Chardonnay. Ticks a lot of white wine boxes. If you haven't tried a barrel fermented Sauv Blanc before, then give this a try, you won't be disappointed.

”Hand picked, fermented with indigenous yeast in seasoned and new French oak. In Australian sauvignon terms, this is the next level. The winemaker seeks to bring added complexity, mouthfeel, savouriness and intensity – a touch of seriousness – to the grape variety. The flavour profile changes to lemongrass, herbs, preserved lemon and grilled grapefruit with a waxy texture. Quite a stunner.”
