Maison Noire Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2015 $12

Here’s where you need to get your thoughts away from the words ‘sauvignon blanc’ and think about it more as being a white wine made in a reduced, funky style, that’ll definitely spark debate if you took it along to a blind tasting.  A splash of viognier has been blended in to up the floral and citrus oil quotient, and at four years old, the acidity is showing no signs of mellowing.  It’s an unsusal style that’ll polarise people for sure.  But if you’re the adventurous type then leap in!
