This one had my attention immediately, but not because of the cool label.

What you can’t see in the image, because I binned it, is the bottle cap that this bottle has, instead of a cork. I thought that was seriously cool.

On to the label. I don’t subscribe to the “plain label = quality wine”. It really doesn’t matter as far as I’m concerned. And if anyone asks for proof, look no further than this wine.

Here’s a quick video showing off the whole bottle

It’s unfined and has minimal sulphur addition.

This takes New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc to another level.

Our opinion

Fruity, smoky, and easy to drink. It’s everything you expect from a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, but at another level. It’s a must try.

It’s been a while since I had some, but I remember it having a little tartness and astringency as well as a light complexity.

Steve’s scale

Would be hard to see this slipping out of my top 10 whites ever.

If you’re wondering about the relevance of the skateboard in the shot – I’m a skateboarder and have been since I was young. Mischief was the local independent skate store run by Bingo (google him) who sadly passed some years ago. We’re trying to represent him in a lot of what we do as an independent business from Teesside. You can also see the iconic Transporter Bridge, which is a prominent Teesside landmark on the board graphic.
