Description

  • Dry style
  • Grapefruit & rockmelon
  • Herbal notes
  • Round finish

Pungent herbal aromas lead into a juicy palate bursting with zesty grapefruit and rock-melon, with a round weighty finish.

The quality of this year's Marlborough wines looks exceptional despite the challenging lockdown circumstances. Capturing the essence of Marlborough, this Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of selective vineyards from both the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes destined for this Cellar Selection wine were harvested in cool night temperatures to protect the aromatics. Clear juice is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks using selected aromatic yeast strains. The wine is left to mature on yeast lees for a short period of time to build palate weight and texture into the wine, without compromising freshness. A near-perfect growing season led up to 2020 harvest with fruit in pristine condition. The summer was dry with high sunshine hours during the day and the cooler nights that are typical for Marlborough. Yields were at their optimum level and the stable autumn weather allowed us to extend the hang-time of the fruit on the vines to achieve physiological ripeness.

Food Pairing: Serve lightly chilled, perfect as an aperitif or matched with any seafood dish.

Good value. Satisfactory rounded flavour notes and acidity. Easy and pleasant to drink
