Ghost Corner Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Ghost Corner Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Naturally fermented Sauvignon Blanc. Enticing aromas of fleshy white pear and quince with an illusion of sweetness. Ten months barrel maturation gives a creamy, full-palate with beautiful length.

Well paired with fresh seafood or a creamy pasta.
