Their Section 94 sauvignon blanc, named for the vineyard block where it's grown, is fermented and aged for 18 months in old oak barrels on the grape solids, with no exposure to oxygen.

It probably won't become a mainstream expression of Marlborough wine, but it will interest adventurous oenophiles.
