Oak-aged sauvignon

Te Pa Oke Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Marlborough, NZD $24.95

Barrel-fermented and oak-aged for 11 months. A rich and textural sauvignon blanc with obvious oak influence adding an extra layer of toasty complexity to ripe stone fruit flavours. A weighty, smooth-textured wine that promises to age well in bottle. (Screwcap)

    Thanks so much for reviewing our gorgeous 2016 Oke, Bob! This complex and textural wine has been the star of our range in 2017, including taking out the Number One spot in Dish Magazine’s Sauv Blanc tasting panel a few weeks ago. We’d welcome any one interested in purchasing or listing this lovely wine to get in touch directly (mikela@tepawines.com). Cheers!
