THE WESTIE SAUVIGNON BLANC

 

Overview:

A rich, intensely flavoured Sauvignon Blanc that proves a versatile partner for many dishes.

Grapes:

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Region:

North Island

Winemaker:

Adam Hazeldine

Recommended Food:

Pleasant on it's own though it makes a nice partner for fresh fish served with a summery salad. Also worth trying with smoked salmon frittatas.

Recommended Cellaring:

0-4 years

Production Notes:

The grapes are crushed and pressed at our Auckland winery upon arrival. To enhance the varietal flavour expression, fermentation takes place in refrigerated stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures using a variety of yeasts. After 2 months on lees the blend was assembled and bottled.

Tasting Notes:
The aroma is gooseberry and cut grass with underlying tropical fruits. The palate is soft, mouthfulling and juicy - good fruit intensity with red apples and melon standing out. Well balanced acidity and herbal notes combine to make this a delightfully refreshing wine.
