2018 Hans Herzog Sauvignon Blanc 'Sur Lie'

£34.00

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

Alcohol: 14.5%

Blend: Sauvignon Blanc

Hans Herzog

New Zealand is not short of premium grape growers and winemakers but, for us, Hans Herzog stands among the very best. They have been selected by us for their organic, handmade, and characterful, wines that are full of charm and depth of fruit.

Here, all of the grapes are grown on their organic vineyard - one of Marlborough's best sites - then handpicked, produced, and bottled on the estate!

To go that extra step, even the bottling, labelling, and packaging, is all done at the winery to ensure the quality is never compromised.
