Mitchell Harris Sauvignon Blanc Fumé Pyrenees 2016

A wild yeast ferment, partial malolactic fermentation in French oak and two weeks on skins have lead  here to a high quality expression of the fumé sauvignon blanc style from Mitchell Harris.  In the glass, there are aromas of cashew, smoke and minerals.  The palate is medium bodied, fresh and racy, with lemon characters and good length.  A very good example of this style.  (Region: Pyrenees, Rating: Very Good, Drink: now, Tasted: August, 2017, Source: Sample)
