Stoneleigh Wild Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Wild Ferment to try and step it up from the usual mix of Marlborough.

Stoneleigh, Wild Valley, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, 2016

Smells almost like sweet wine: a flabby heavy nose of stone fruit combined with gooseberry, passionfruit jam, cumquat. Ripe palate with baked apple richness before fading to lighter tropical qualities: melon, passion fruit and greener gooseberry. Avoids too much grassiness but still slightly disappointing considering the name.

RRP: $19.99
