Mayhem Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMuch like last year, this youthful, showy, pungent sauvignon demonstrates the versatility of the Naramata Bench. Expect an intense grapefruit and passionfruit that is reminiscent of Marlborough, but $5 cheaper. I’m impressed with what you get here for the money and suggest it would be perfect with west coast mussels or clams. It's made with a mix of destemmed and whole bunch pressed fruit, partially native fermented in a combination of stainless steel (76%) and French barrels (10% new and 14 neutral). aged on its lees until bottling. Super value and fun. It's the Mayhem style I applaud.Tasted: 01 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 15.65 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Mayhem Wines Inc.Distributors: International Cellars Inc.
