Description

The nose shows cirtus notes, underpinned with aromas of fresh herbs and blackcurrant leaf. The palate is full, lively and balanced with a long, crisp mineral finish. Enjoy now, or cellar up to 2 years.

The 2019 growing season in Marlborough was a hot and dry one. Winemakers received small amounts of rain around the end of December, but then no further until late February. These rain events had very little impact on soil moisture levels, but helped to replenish the rivers, setting them up nicely to see them through to harvest. Vintage started in mid-March and it provided incredibly stable weather. This meant blocks could be picked at their optimum, without having the pressure from weather events experienced in other years. The resulting wine is showing the wonderful hallmarks that our Awatere vineyards are known for – highly aromatic fruit flavours, with underlying purity and minerality.

Carefully selected parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from Awatere Valley vineyards were used to craft this wine. The fruit was harvested over a period of twenty days. At the winery, the fruit was destemmed and gently pressed. Each of the individual parcels were fermented separately using a range of selected yeasts to enhance varietal characters. The wine was then blended, stabilised and filtered in preparation for bottling.

This wine is inspired by the coast that surrounds the vineyards in which this fruit is grown, so close to the ocean that the vines are often misted with sea spray. The beauty of this environment influences how the wine is crafted, respectful of nature and the land. Yealands believes in sustainable winemaking and creating thoughtfully crafted wines that work in harmony with their landscape.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with seafood, chicken, salads and pastas.
