Esk Valley, Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough, 2021
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Notes: Vegan, Vegetarian
This is an intensely aromatic wine in a classic Marlborough style. True to its origins its flavours are a medley of ripe tropical fruits and notes of citrus and fresh herbs. It is dry and medium bodied with a crisp refreshing finish.
Stony vineyard sites in the Wairau Valley (40%) and further south in the cooler Awatere Valley were selected for this wine. The Wairau Valley fruit provides the blended wine with structure and tropical fruit notes while the Awatere Vineyard offers acidity and pungent notes of nettle, pea pods and gooseberry. The vineyards are all carefully managed and crop thinned in the pursuit of quality fruit.
This dry wine is a perfect match for seafood and many Asian inspired dishes
