This Sauvignon Blanc from Clearwater Cove has lifted aromas of fresh herbs, with capsicum and passionfruit flavours on the palate, with a fresh mineral acidity on the finish.
Individual parcels of Sauvignon Blanc were selected from our Awatere Valley vineyards, where they were harvested separately at perfect ripeness. At the winery, the fruit was destemmed, gently pressed and settled, after which the clear juice was inoculated with carefully selected yeast. A long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks enhanced the fruit flavours this Sauvignon Blanc in known for. The wine was then blended, stabilised and filtered in preparation for bottling.
The different parcels of Sauvignon Blanc have been combined to make a wine that is brimming with pure fruit flavours. The nose is lifted and fresh with notes of passion fruit, blackcurrant and fresh herbs. The sweet fruit characters and crisp acidity, combine to create a palate that is fresh with a zesty mineral finish. Enjoy with fresh seafood.
