O:TU ‘Single Vineyard’ Sauvignon Blanc 2016

15-Aug-2018

The new O:TU wine range has expanded considerably over the past couple of years, giving it greater breadth and depth. The company has added wines from other varieties, styles and regions to be more complete. The accessible ‘Music Bay’ range complements the O:TU ‘Classic’ bottlings. Above these are the single vineyard wines which are designed to express the uniqueness of the six sites in the company’s Awatere Valley plantings. These comprise the Otuwhero ‘Top Block’, Otuwhero ‘Middle Block’, Otuwhero ‘Flat’, the ‘Donaldson’ block, ‘Dysart’s’ block and ‘Smiths’ block. Here, I review the 2016 ‘Single Vineyard’ Sauvignon Blanc, the fruit from ‘Dysart’s’ block. I reviewed the 2017 ‘Single Vineyard’ wine recently (click here to see my review). Both wines are restrained, soft and elegant in style. www.otuwine.com
