This wine is the result of a real dream of a group of friends. The label is based on an old medical drawing of the science of phrenology, which assigned personal traits to the contours of one’s skull, with areas devoted to specific temperaments and skills. Otto is singularly contoured to think about wine constantly! OCD harks from sustainably farmed and meticulously maintained vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys of Marlborough, New Zealand. Fiona’s aim is to produce wines that are fresh and approachably fruit driven, supported by balanced structural elements, mineral driven characteristics, persistent length and elegance.
Medium-bodied, dry. An aromatic wine with a perfect balance of minerals, gooseberry, citrus and acidity.
Sauvignon Blanc is a quintessential white wine calling for white meats (from fish and shellfish to chicken and pork). The wine's typically crisp acidic edge and moderately medium weight does not lend itself to anything beyond that (it does not "cross over" into red meats)
