Mayhem Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSuper punchy and forward, this youthful sauvignon blanc comes from Naramata Bench. Intense grapefruit, passionfruit, guava takes over the tart, short palate with a burst of power, finishing snappy and brisk. If you're a big fan of the pungent and punchy Marlborough style, give this local one a try. We love the price. It's made with a mix of destemmed and whole bunch pressed fruit, and partially native fermented in a combination of stainless and French barrels (6% new). Post ferment, this rested six months on lees, before the portions were blended and bottled.Tasted: 17 June 2020Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 15.65 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
