SAUVIGNON BLANC 2015
The grapes were harvested according to flavour and skin ripeness. To allow the purity of fruit flavours from the vineyard to be expressed we have fermented the majority of our grapes in stainless steel at low temperatures whilst adding complexity and mid palate weight with the balance fermented in old oak barrels. The combination of these two portions provides a wine full of varietal fruit expression balanced with texture and weight. A multi-dimensional wine.
The excellent 2015 vintage delivers subtle aromas of white florals, fresh herbs and stone fruits. The palate is full and rich with flavours of gooseberry, passionfruit and stone fruits. An elegant and restrained Sauvignon Blanc with subtle richness balanced with a lovely minerality. Wonderfully suited to herb marinated white meat dishes or freshly shucked oysters.
The recommended retail price is $24.00 per bottle.
You can buy from retailers throughout New Zealand (see Where to Buy) or enjoy at a number of leading restaurants. Or, you may buy directly from us. Please note we sell wine in cases of 12.
