Lismore, Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc, Greyton, South Africa 2014
If you are after textbook Sauvignon Blanc, then move away. This unique style is complex with notes of ripe peach and sweet spice. Unusual petrol notes emerge on the richly textured palate. The complexity and well-integrated oak and the mineral undertones make this wine highly distinctive, and a real gem.
