O:TU 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Release

07-Dec-2012
I last reviewed the O:TU wines of Otuwhero Estate in April this year, when the original company which was placed into receivership in 2010, was acquired by an international consortium which released two Sauvignon Blanc wines from the 2011 vintage to mark O:TU's return to the marketplace. I was impressed with the wines (click here to see my review). The 2012 vintage Sauvignon Blancs have just arrived for review. With their new livery, they represent the revitalised produce from the six vineyard blocks that comprise 200 ha of plantings in the south-eastern Awatere Valley, and the work of Jan Kux, newly appointed winemaker and general manager. Based in Switzerland, Kux intends to "combine Old World expertise with new, innovative New World winemaking techniques in New Zealand”. My reviews follow. www.otuwine.com
