Hunter’s Kāho Roa Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017 $23.90 (4.5 stars)

Hunter’s Kāho Roa Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017 $23.90

Sourced from the clay-rich soils of their Omaka vineyard, the fruit for this sauvignon was crushed and the cloudy, high-solids juice poured directly into old French oak puncheons for a wild yeast (spontaneous) fermentation.  The wine was then aged on its lees for 6 months before bottling, which injects a creamy-softness to the tight herbaceous lines that are laced with smoke and struck match notes.  Lemongrass, grilled capsicum and peapod characters make this so much more than just a sauvignon.  Love it.
