Fromm La Strada Sauvignon Blanc
This product is currently sold out.
Easily the most popular Sauvignon Blanc in our retail shop in Bury, the Fromm La Strada Sauvignon Blanc is simply brilliant and is why Fromm Vineyards are now regarded as one of the top 3 Sauv Blanc producers in New Zealand. Previously providing their grapes for inclusion in the unstoppable Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, the Fromm team were playing the waiting game. They were waiting until the grapes had reached the maturity and quality needed to launch their own Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and the results are quite spectacular. Most of our customers tell us they much prefer this to Cloudy Bay. The Fromm La Strada Sauvignon Blanc is hand bitingly pretty wine. Intense pure lemon and wonderfully uplifting stony minerality. Hugely affirmative stuff! Very Sancerre like, the palate is zippy, zesty and fresh, held together by creamy minerality, with tight white peach and a tiny hint of pink grapefruit. The 2015 is the best vintage to date of this now cult wine. The richness and weight of palate makes this wine really versatile. Try it with seafood such as bass, turbot, trout, prawns or even oysters! Just avoid heavy creamy sauces.
