Esk Valley, Sauvignon Blanc 2017
- This is a very intense and powerful wine. True to its Marlborough origins its flavours are a mix of ripe tropical fruits, citrus and cooler notes of fresh herbs and pea pod. It is dry and full bodied but a crisp finish provides freshness and length.
- The individual individual vineyard parcels are harvested and transported to the winery for immediate crushing to capture the freshness of the fruit. Fermentation is conducted at cool temperatures utilising selected yeast strains. Post fermentation the new wines are then left on lees to gain richness and complexity.
