2017 Tincan ‘Sassy’ Sauvignon Blanc

Nelson, New Zealand

We love the word 'Sassy'. With this context, Nick and Laura from Nelzon NZ have crafted a wine that challenges the norm across the Tasman. Predominantly a Sauvignon Blanc, but with added Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer for fun. Fermented on skins (grape skins that is) for a decent amount of time. Dry and medium bodied. We found this wine incredibly smooth with hints of fruitiness. A touch of that NZ acidity to liven it up.

About the maker

Starting out as a boutique project in 2016, Nick from Tincan seems to be still one of the 'early adopters' for organic and minimal intervention wine in NZ.

Their philosophy is to produce fun wine, thought-provoking and approachable wines. The fruit is taken from their organic vineyards, with wild yeast for fermentation, no additives, no sulphur, no fining and filteration and importantly no vegan products used. Notwasted have tasted all their latest vintage, uplifting and citrus feel to it, with that classic NZ acidity still poking through.
