Description

  • Dry style
  • Blackcurrant
  • Guava & sweet pea
  • Crisp, mineral finish

Lifted notes of blackcurrant bud, passionfruit, guava and sweet pea, underpinned with citrus notes. A generous palate with pure, concentrated fruit flavours balanced by a deliciously long, crisp mineral finish.

The 2021 harvest was their earliest on record. There were late spring frosts in Marlborough and some challenging weather over the flowering period, which resulted in moderate crops throughout the region. These moderate crops, coupled with a warm and stable end to the growing season, set them up for an early start with stunning fruit. They had clear warm days throughout March, so they could pick at their leisure, without any pressure from the elements. The resulting wine is showing the wonderful hallmarks that their Awatere vineyards are known for – highly concentrated fruit flavours, with underlying purity and minerality.

Carefully selected parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from their Seaview vineyard in the Awatere Valley were used to create this wine. The perfect weather conditions allowed the fruit to be harvested with ideal ripeness and flavour. At the winery the fruit was gently pressed, and juice settled to remove solids. The clear juice underwent fermentation in various temperature controlled stainless steel tanks using a range of selected yeasts to capture and enhance the wines varietal characters. The wine was then blended, stabilised and filtered in preparation for bottling.

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

Food Pairing: Enjoy with seafood such as prawns, mussels or fish.
