An experience wine, as such, but very bloody good.
About The Wine
It may say 'Marlborough' and 'Sauvignon Blanc' on the front label, but this is anything but your average Marlborough Sauv Blanc.
It's a long, slow process for this wine to get to bottle, taking 15 months in barrel on lees before reaching the glass.
The richness of flavour and furious complexity of this wine shows just how good Sauvignon Blanc from this part of the world when made with care and attention.
It's a terrific wine. Bold but balance and immensely pleasurable to drink.
About Hans Herzog
With over 500 years of winemaking history in his family, Swiss winemaker Hans Herzog picked up his life in Zurich wine country, and with his wife Therese, headed for New Zealand.
In 1994, they established one of the most stunning vineyards in the heart of the Marlborough region, planting an astonishing 29 varieties on their small patch of land.
They tend the vineyard with immense love and care. Everything is grown organically. Hans crafts premium, idiosyncratic wines that show the beauty of his vineyard in every glass and shares these wines with every person who comes to dine at their fine estate.
As The Wine Front's Gary Walsh once noted, there's "Never a dull moment when you open a wine from Hans Herzog."
