Out of Step Wine Co. Margin Walker Sauvignon Blanc 2016

The 2016 guise of the Margin Walker comes from the Willowlake Vineyard (the 2015 being off of Lusatia Park, a fruit source prior to its acquisition by De Bortoli).
Made primarily from a single bin of fruit. It was sent to two one year old barriques to ferment naturally, and then mature. 

Smelling more like a mature Chardonnay, all honeyed and stone fruit rich. It simply oozes with charm and character. Texturally lavish, it comes with a vanilla and stonefruit profile - quite unlike any Sauvignon Blanc you’re like to have tasted before, unless of course it came from the Out of Step crew.

Grapefruit drops add further substance, and provide the lead in to a long, flowing finish. Simply put, this is quite exemplary Sauvignon Blanc. Words I don’t often write. 94
