Description

Shows lifted notes of citrus blossom, elderflower, passionfruit and guava, underpinned with aromas of fresh citrus and herbs. The palate is full and lively with juicy tropical fruit that is balanced with a long, fresh mineral finish. Enjoy now, or cellar up to 2 years.

The 2019 growing season in Marlborough was a hot and dry one. We 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 up nicely to see through to harvest. Vintage started mid-March and it provided with incredibly stable weather. This meant blocks could be picked at their optimum ripeness. The resulting wine is showing the wonderful hallmarks that these Awatere and Wairau vineyards are known for – highly aromatic fruit flavors of passionfruit and fresh herbs, with underlying purity and minerality.

Carefully selected parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from these Awatere and Wairau Valley vineyards were used to craft this wine. The vines were carefully managed to reach ideal balance and flavor concentration at lower sugar levels, producing a naturally lighter in alcohol wine. At the winery, the fruit was destemmed and gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 72 hours, after which the clear juice was racked off, followed by a long cool fermentation in stainless steel to capture and enhance the fruit flavours. 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.

Yealands wine is inspired by the coast that surrounds them, so close to the ocean that the vines are often misted with sea spray. The beauty of this environment influences how they craft wine, 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.
