2016 Willowlake Margin Walker

Out-of-Step-Margin-Walker-Willowlake-2016.jpg

The second release of our very limited, top shelf sauvignon blanc. Yep, you read that right.

Produced for the most part from a single bin of fruit off the revered Willowlake Vineyard in Gladysdale, Deep, red volcanic soils always seem to imbue the variety with tremendous power, depth & complexity, whilst the altitude & latitude (300m above sea level in the cooler southern part of the valley) ensure that freshness & vitality are retained. Paired this time with two one year old barriques in which the wine was wild fermented & then matured, we feel that whilst all of our sauvignon blancs are about shifting perceptions, this one does it better than any……
