Folium Reserve Sauvignon Blanc bottleshot

2015 Folium Vineyard Reserve Sauvignon Blanc – Marlborough, NZ
A perfume boasting delicate florals, gooseberry, and nectarine, with fine hints of minerality giving the aroma lift. Mouthwatering, crisp acidity wraps notes of rich stonefruit, herbs, gooseberry and florals. A long, dry finish.

2016 De La Terre Syrah – Hawke’s Bay, NZ
Complex aromas of violets and ripe black fruits, layered with floral notes and a dark pepper spice. Nuances of fine-grained French oak support the fruit aromas. An initial burst of dark and rich Syrah fruit is supported by very fine tannins and toasty French oak. The flavour is both long and persistent and highlights the impeccable balance between fruit, tannin and acidity.
