2015 Mammoth Rare White

$52.00

Place: Nelson, New Zealand

Variety: Sauvignon Blanc

Farming: Organic

When you meet Michael Glover, you immediately understand that this is not a person who enjoys compromising. Quite the opposite, in fact, as is the case for those with strong views. And Michael’s views are strong. 

The only fruit he’ll work with is dry-grown and organically farmed so that the fruit is pristine, requiring no unnecessary manipulation and allowing honest, unhindered expression of time and place. This is pristine fruit and the result speaks for itself. 

During his days at Bannockburn in Geelong, Michael Glover caused quite a stir with his opinions on sauvignon blanc. Never content to make a boring wine, Michael set about experimenting with whole bunch ferments of white grapes, Sauvignon Blanc in particular.

Rare White is the next step in that exploration. From an organically farmed vineyard in Nelson, it’s incredibly spicy, smokey and left-of-centre. It needs lots of time and air to fully open, showing best the day after. A complete vinous curio.
