REVIEWS

A Case of the Best // New-Wave Marlborough, Joelle Thomson, FQ Life

This is a sauvignon blanc, not as we know it. Winemakers James Healy and Ivan Sutherland add creamy bells and whistles to this wine by fermenting their sauvignon grapes in oak barrels to soften savvy’s crisp green flavours – rather than adding a wood-derived taste. The result is an addictively tasty new take on Marlborough savvy.
