Lismore Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Review

Sauvignon Blanc in wood is now happening, and this wine is a good example of how well this can be done. The nose opens with candied pineapple, peaches and pears. There is also some vanilla from a kiss of oak. The palate is grippy, and well-balanced, doing away with classic bell pepper notes to make room for minty yogurt and coconut.
