Wine of New Zealand / Southern Ocean
True to its origin, this Sauvignon Blanc captures the essence of the grape grown in the maritime climate of Marlborough. Crafted from vineyards in the Awatare and Wairau valleys.
Best served chilled
New Zealand is a premier new-world wine country, producing award-winning wines that reflect the clean air and sunshine. Marlborough is a well-known wine-producing region in this country. A combination of a cool yet high sunshine climate, low rainfall and free-draining, moderately fertile soil produces uniquely vivid wines. The most popular varietal is Sauvignon blanc, closely followed by Pinot noir and Chardonnay.
This wine has the classic aromas of juicy tropical fruit and zesty citrus with intense flavours of passion fruit and zippy gooseberry.
Enjoy with salads, seafood, like oysters or shrimps, salty snacks or delicious tapas.
After crushing, the must is left for maceration for 6 to 8 hours at low temperature to achieve the maximum expression of aromas. The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks at 14-16º C. The wine making process includes careful handling at every stage.
