Mayhem Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Naramata Bench fruit, this was destemmed and partially native fermented over one month in stainless and 225L French barriques (10% new), where it remained for 6 months on lees. I like the subtle wood touch here, up against the crunchy, bright grapefruit, tangerine, lemongrass, lime pith, and Asian pear on the palate, trailing off with an alluring salinity. This year's sauvy harkens both NZ and Bx, but still remains firmly Okanagan. Nicely done.Tasted: 27 May 2021Tasted by: Prices:
