Textural sauvignon

Jules Taylor OTQ Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Marlborough, NZD $34.99

An oak-fermented sauvignon blanc with very little oak character, but plenty of nutty yeast lees influence adding complexity to concentrated and ripe tree fruit and red capsicum flavours. An impressive wine both in terms of complexity and texture. (Screwcap)
