2018 Hans Herzog Sauvignon Blanc 'Sur Lie'
In 1994, Hans Herzog identified a piece of land a long way from home in Marlborough, one of the sunniest and driest climates in New Zealand.
The arid sandy and gravelly soils on the right bank of the Wairau River reminded him of the Médoc region in Bordeaux with its late ripening Cabernet, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
This river creates a special microclimate and the free draining soils make it one of the warmest and most valuable blocks in Marlborough.
Handcrafted in tiny quantities for an incomparable artisan Sauvignon. Untamed, with a longer than usual skin contact for complexity and texture. Made with natural fermentation in barrel - without any additions - and many months on the fine lees for its famous silkiness.
Tasting Note: Dry and explosively rich, the pinnacle of a stately Sauvignon Blanc. A dance of dried flowers, light white peach, and a touch of exotic fruits. A harmonious expression of Sauvignon Blanc, reminiscent of a truly mouth-watering graves with class and composure.
Origin: Marlborough, New Zealand
Blend: Sauvignon Blanc
