Description

  • Barrel-fermented
  • Dry style
  • Ripe stone fruit
  • Toast & ginger

"Oak-aged Sauvignon Blanc that's been fermented with indigenous yeasts. Quite a precise and textural wine with a hint of toast, ginger and oak adding complexity to quite ripe stone fruit and grapefruit flavours. A crisp, dry wine supported by gentle acidity" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Dec 2017

"Refined and elegant, yet powerful and persistent; this complex offering displays grapefruit, kaffir lime, rockmelon and lemon peel characters on the nose with a subtle oatmeal note. The palate delivers excellent fruit concentration and focus, wonderfully enhanced by layers of fine texture and bright acidity, leading to an impressively long, linear finish. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2017

"A very funky, intense, complex nose dominated by barrel-ferment characters - butter on toast, dried hay, vanilla and cinnamon but also with golden delicious apple, limoncello and dried herbs. A complex, full-bodied style, almost oily in texture with plenty of extract and weight" NZ Wine Rater, Dec 2020

A powerful and concentrated wine that is packed with ripe stone fruit flavours and layered with exotic tropical aromas created by the use of wild yeast and selective use of oak. A beautifully balanced wine with exquisite finesse and harmony. Enjoy this wine now or over the next 5-10 years.

This Mystery Winery reserves only their finest wines to carry this Mystery wine's name. This range of wines are therefore made with love and passion. They tell a story of thise Mystery winery's land, vines and their dedication to making great wine. Intelligent use of oak and indigenous yeast have created wines of wonderful harmony and balance.

Individual rows are chosen by hand and each parcel of fruit is carefully selected and kept separate throughout the winemaking process to preserve the unique flavours. Indigenous fermentations and time on lees allow subtle earthy flavours and a lovely texture to develop. The wines are rich and complex with a perfect amount of oak used in every wine to compliment the style. Each wine is made to represent both the sense of place and also the origin of the grape itself. Only once the wine is in perfect balance will it be bottled and left to age slightly before being released.
