Funky sauvignon

Tohu Mugwi Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Marlborough, NZD $29.95

Flagship sauvignon blanc that’s been fermented in old oak barrels using indigenous yeasts. Impressively rich, weighty wine with capsicum, mineral, struck flint and nutty yeast lees character. It’s a welcome alternative to the usual fresh and fruity style of the regular label. (Screwcap)
