SB 2013 BottleWinemaking Notes:

The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc was made from a blend of grapes from several vineyards in the famed Wairau and Awatere Vallies of the Marlborough region of New Zealand.  The cool growing season combined with a long Indian summer yielded grapes with intense aromas and bracing acidity.  Fermented to dryness at temperatures of 14-17°C, the wine displays New Zealand’s purity of flavors.  To add richness and intensity, the wine was aged on the lees for 2 months.

Tasting Notes:

Passion fruit and currant aromas are accompanied by notes of citrus in the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc.  The wine displays a beautiful straw yellow hue and the dominant flavors are fresh and herbal combined with elder flower and tropical fruit.  The fresh acidity leads to a delicate but persistent finish.

Food Pairing:

Serve with grilled fish and seafood, fresh green salads and vegetable dishes.
