Such attention to detail with Sato (Yoshi and Kyoko Sato) wines. Meticulous. This is from Pisa Terrace vineyard in Central Otago, and quite a different beast to most from the region. The opposite of beast, one could say. No chemicals used in farming, no additions in winery, natural ferment, no fining or filtering. Heading to the top of the class in the region, at pace.
Just lovely, really. Has softness, a sigh of dark fruit through a bustle of briar and sweet spice and floral characters. Bouquet is similar with its dark cherry, herbs, pretty floral character, faint earthiness. It’s that texture and weight though… just superb. Supple, succulent, beautiful to let slide down your throat. You’ll be back for more. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front 2016
