About the Wine:
This awesome oaked Frankland River Sauvignon Blanc 2017 (Fume Blanc) was part barrel fermented and then spent 9 months in new and used French oak barrels. The wine displays wonderful lifted aromas of white peach and jasmine flowers with hints of vanilla. Complex layers of zesty lime. Peach and a fine line of classy French oak. The wine is elegant and refined and will age spectacularly with increased intensity and oak flavours.
Comments from Wine Buyer Steve:
This is a stunning 2017 Sauvignon Blanc in the Fume Blanc Style was partially fermented in seasoned French oak and stainless. Beautiful up-front flavours of peach with lime notes and a nice smooth finish with beautiful French oak characters.
My score 94/100 – WACC Gold Medal
