Description

The nose is lifted with fresh notes of passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf. The sweet fruit characters on the palate and fresh acidity combine to create an expressive and attractive Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy now, or cellar up to 2 years.

The 2019 growing season in Marlborough was a hot and dry one. Small amounts of rain was received around the end of December, but then no further rain 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 in mid-March and it provided incredibly stable weather. This meant blocks could be picked at their optimum ripeness. The Sauvignon Blanc produced from this vintage has concentrated fruit flavours, with a vibrant pure palate and an elegant fresh finish.

Individual parcels of Sauvignon Blanc were selected for this wine from Awatere and Wairau Valley vineyards. The parcels were harvested and fermented separately, using selected yeast strains for Sauvignon Blanc to enhance varietal character. A long, cool fermentation took place over four weeks, with the parcels then being blended and stabilised, prior to bottling.

It’s the little things in life that count and it’s the littlest sheep that help make Babydoll wines. This sustainable collection of wines are pure and intense with plenty of character, just like the Babydoll sheep they're named them after. These tiny sheep keep the vineyards tidy year round because they’re too small to reach the grapes. Using one of nature’s mowers means these wines are better for the environment and taste better too. Celebrate life’s little moments with Babydoll wines.

Food Pairing: Beautiful with fresh seafood.

Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and a gluten free diet.
