Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Misty Cove Estate Sauvignon Blanc is made to truly reflect our philosophy of producing a value for money wine with distinctive pure, wonderful fruit flavours and and aromas typical of the Marlborough region.

Beautifully fragrant, the immediately appealing nose shows nectarine, rock melon, feijoa and lime zest characters with a hint herbaceous notes. The palate is succulent and lively, and displays excellent fruit weight and intensity, finishing juicy with a fine linger! 

Our Estate Sauvignon Blanc can be best enjoyed with a wide range of dishes including (shell) fish, poultry, salads or simply as a classy aperitif.

Process

The fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc was grown at our Upper Wairau, Waihopai and Rapaura vineyards. Each vineyard site was treated individually to ensure integrity of the vineyard and to retain the individual characters each site has to offer as well as providing the best blending possibilities. The fruit was crushed, gently pressed and the resulting juice was then settled before being cool fermented in stainless steel using different yeasts to add complexity.

Tasting Note

The colour is a delightful light lime and the bouquet is full of lively gooseberry, fresh herbs and melon aromas with tropical passionfruit and citrus fruit character on the palate. This wine has great acidity and length, finishing refreshingly limey and elegant.
