Carrick Central Otago Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2021 $28

Paired with: Oven Baked Potato Spinach Feta Frittata by Annabel Langbein in the NZ Herald May 20 2023

Glory be to the creator. Of this sensational organic sauvignon blanc. Who happens to be winemaker Rosie Menzies. A long slow fermentation in older oak barrels followed by a nine-month, settle-down snooze, has created an incredibly elegant, soothing, ever-so-slightly smoky sauvignon with luscious lemongrass and elderflower layers and a vibrant, vanilla-laced core. If you don’t like the squinty acidity or powerful passionfruitiness of our more commercial sauvignon blanc styles, then you definitely need to taste this. It’s a superb thing to sip, especially with this fantastic frittata, because it’s a sauvignon out on its own.
