Landmark

Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Misty Cove’s Landmark Sauvignon Blanc is deeply influenced by old world winemaking techniques. Lovingly handcrafted in small batch quantities, we crafted this wine to reflect the “Landmark” – the attributes and characteristics of the Fareham Lane vineyard from which it originated.

Fruit hand harvested and fermented at cool temperatures in stainless settle tanks after gentle pressing. We have used the best strains of yeast most suited to the distinctive aromatics of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Lees ageing (6 months) prior to bottling has developed mid-palate weight adding to the wine’s intense fruit characters.

Citrus minerality with tropical notes and touches of gooseberry. The palate weight is rich and full, balanced with refined acidity.

REVIEW

Wine Orbit: 94/100 

"It is instantly appealing on the nose showing passionfruit, feijoa, kiwifruit and lime peel characters. The palate is intensely flavoured and punchy, delivering excellent fruit concentration and fine texture, brilliantly supported by refreshing acidity. A wonderfully expressed sauvignon offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2021."
