Regular price £28.00
Exclusive range from award-winning estate – French oak ageing for offers superior structure
Little Beauty – Black Editio
This limited range is produced from only the best grapes on the Little Beauty Marlborough estate, a painstaking parcel selection process and precise oenology methodology ensuring that only the best of the best make the cut. The wines are then aged carefully in French oak in order to add extra weight and depth, giving them an extra dimension to the other Little Beauty vintages. The project focuses primarily on Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris production.
The Sauvignon Blanc is a single vineyard edition from the Waihopai Valley, drawing fruit from three carefully identified parcels. The final result is a complex wine that offers something slightly different from a standard Sauvignon Blanc. The fact it is fermented with 100% wild yeast in French Oak tapers the sharp acidity that is often associated with this variety; the Black Edition instead carrying a creamy, mellow texture.
