Sauvignon Blanc Central Otago New Zealand
The frigid climes and inhospitable terroirs of Cromwell Basin are idyll for Sauvignon Blanc of defined Central Otago regionality. The combination of chilled winds and stony alluvial soils enthuse vines to yield small crops of parched and intensely flavoured grapes, brimming with vigorous fruit characters, while offering the balance and structure for the realization of bold white wines in suave old world styling. The Sauvignon Blanc of choice to accompany braised white meats, the freshest fried fish, or a gourmandise blanquette de lapin.
Light, bright straw hues. Fresh fruit aromas followed by fragrances of the market garden, tomatoes, herbs and green bean. Conspicuously solid Otago palate of passion and grapefruit flavours, capsicum and pungent garden characters. A veritable smorgasbord of ripe fruit and green vegetables throughout.
