Out of Step Willowlake Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

These guys *get* Sauvignon Blanc - see here.

From the Out of Step team: "
wild yeast fermented in barrel. Around 15% new oak, with a mix of one year old, two year old & neutral barriques making up the balance. Not a lot of stirring or malo, just left on lees until bottling around 6 months down the track."

Throws the mix of citrus, nettle, herb - a touch of lemon balm. Straddles a line between somewhat tropical aromas with fresh and fragrant Mediterranean lilts.

Palate sees plenty going on, a glorious mix of inherent flavour, backed up with phenolic grip and mineral acidity. It sees the citric elements racing through the palate, turbo-charged with that lovely line of acid. 

Finishes well, the texture and grip last long after the wine has gone before it. Bravo gents, indeed making the Sav a little bottle rad again. 92
