Mr Whirly says:
I have to admit something here. I am not responsible for sourcing this wine! This is a terrible admission, since this goes against my religion of wine sourcing! But its a great wine and I met the winemaker, Russell Hooper in 2011 and decided to help him out with a little marketing of his wines.
Its a little bit different from the normal NZ Sauvignon Blanc! So thats why its here. The wine is different for the following reasons:
- Grown solely on clay gravel soils, therefore site specific and different from the traditional multi sub regional blends.
- Made from only free run juice, determined by the winemaker on taste, therefore less aggressive phenolics.
- Fuller mid palate than traditional MSB and finishing drier therefore more food friendly than those made for price points.
