About this wine

The Stanley Estates Wild Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is their first ever barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc in the style of an oaked Pouilly fumé Sauvignon Blanc. Smooth, rounded and subtle, with the same underlying characteristics we know of passionfruit, gooseberries, elderflower, however it is subtly aromatic, very textural and technically dry with a beautifully balanced palate.

Ageing potential: Will age perfectly over the next 6+ years

Serving temperature: Lightly Chilled 8-12°C

Food pairing: Fine seafood, chicken dishes and salads, or simply drink for pleasure!

The variety has classic zingy freshness, citrus notes and in the case of Marlborough in particular, gooseberry aromatics and flavours. Very pure, it can often be opulent yet also the opposite, with taut mineral notes. A classic, modern varietal with huge popularity, usually unoaked, there are an increasing number of food-focused expressions with a little barrel maturation adding texture and lift."
