When is a Sauvignon Blanc not a Sauvignon Blanc? When it's a Fumé Blanc of course! Fumé Blanc (which is still 100% SB, just made in a slightly different style), was a marketing term invented by the Americans when the wine fell out of favour in the 1960s. They did it because they didn't want to be compared to the overly sweet Sav Blanc of the time.

Fox Gordon could be onto something here.... Forget all you know about your typical NZ styles, because you won't find those grassy and passionfruit Sav Blanc flavours here. This is a cool climate cracker fermented with natural yeast giving it an almost creamy complexity and punchy stone fruit flavours that will give your favourite Chardy a run for the money.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

"The grapes have been hand-picked from the Adelaide Hills vineyard, whole bunch pressed and cold settled.The wine is then wild fermented with natural yeast in large-format French puncheons. This alluring Sauvignon Blanc has a bouquet of fresh peach and stone fruits, a palate of almonds, nougat and red apples with creamy complexity from the lees stirring."

FOOD MATCHING

Serve with scallops, pan-fried salmon with salsa verdé and pasta primavera.

Might be a grower

Unusual wine, particularly to start with. But suspect it may be a grower.

This is a complex and fuller bodied wine that is absolutely delicious. It’s on regular rotation. Yummy.
