"The 2011 Moorlands SB displays the bright youthful acidity synonymous with Marlborough Sauvignon, we also get a beautiful well integrated oak mid-palate – lifting the sweetness before tapering off with that exquisite acidity.  The wine is in better balance now than it has ever been.”
Tasted and reviewed 17 September 2013 by winemaker Matt Elrick

The wild fermentation in oak barriques tricks the uninitiated into thinking this is going to be a smorgasboard of fleshy stone fruit with just a hint of the expected capsicum and herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc characters. The oak fermentation has also imparted some coconut spice, and
there are hints of butterscotch. Sauvignon Blanc however, returns in force to electrify the palate entry with the fresh fruity “zingyness” synonymous Marlborough Sauvignon,leaving the palate cleansed and excited for more. This wine is tight, yet complex, elegant, yet expressive of the winemaking techniques.
Serve lightly chilled with seared fish steaks or pork slices. Enjoy!
