Judges Comments:

Grape varieties like Sauvignon Blanc have a compelling identity, something the world recognises in its thirst for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. In the quest to produce a spectacular wine with a touch of difference, the words Sur Lie on this wine are important as it tells you the yeast cells are left to rest with the wine after fermenting, imparting a rich creamy flavour that adds more mouth weight to the wine. There’s a subtle creamy richness that makes it long in flavour and textural.

Pairing Recommendation:

The refreshing acidity is a terrific complement to Asian inspired dishes, especially Vietnamese and Thai, antipasti and pre dinner nibbles, cheese, chips and dips and pizza or pasta. Also great for a picnic and light lunches.
