Sauvignon Blanc Black Edition, Little Beauty, Marlborough, New Zealand 2018
Regular price £31.35
Only the best grapes from the best parcels are selected for this Black Edition range. 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 carries a creamy, mellow texture.White Sauvignon Blanc 12.5%
