Mandala Fumé Blanc 2020

Sauvignon Blanc can be an interesting, textural wine when put in the right hands. This fumé style Sauv Blanc was barrel aged in old French oak for 8 months.

Honeysuckle and jasmine over crisp snow pea with a ginger nut savoury funk providing interest with varietal passionfruit pulp and creamy coconut “yoghurt.” A soft, creamy palate with width provides comfort and approachability, ably propped up with zesty freshness of juicy acidity. A slightly salty tang through a balanced finish is well appreciated, too. A fine example of Sauvignon Blanc.
