In a nod to the Pouilly-Fumé wines of Bordeaux comes this sauvignon blanc, wild fermented in oak from Yarra Valley’s Mandala Wines.
Well-executed it is, too. The oak and fermentation regimen have built pleasing aromatic complexity; there’s some delicate smoke, flint, and nutty characters that marry easily with the fruit.
The palate is acid driven with some nice textural grip. An interesting wine likely to appeal more to fans of chardonnay than sauvignon blanc.
