Rockburn Fumé Blanc*

Regular price $42.00 Sale

Rockburn Fumé Blanc is a handpicked selection of barrels that most eloquently speak of site and season, and exhibit character above and beyond their cradle-mates. Although made from Sauvignon Blanc, what I am seeking is expression of minerality and texture, something far away from the "ordinary" as far as we understand Sauvignon Blanc to be here in New Zealand. Leave your pre-conceptions behind and this wine will open your eyes.

Our Fumé Blanc is a single vineyard wine displaying the richness and minerality created from out Parkburn Vineyard site, giving a richer, rounder take on the Kiwi favourite 'Sauvignon Blanc. Extended barrel maturation and malolactic fermentation induce secondary characteristics giving texture, length and weight to the wine. You will discover notes of white peach, petrichor, and wet stone; hints of pavlova dance on the rich but well defined palate. 

Best enjoyed very lightly chilled. Cellar for a decade or more with confidence.
