Secret Stone Squealing Pig Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Awatere New Zealand
Squealing Pig Vineyard is located in Marlborough's Awatere Valley. Known for its mineral and textural styles of wine, Awatere produces quite a distinct, savoury Sauvignon Blanc compared to the tropical, pungent and fruit forward efforts of greater Marlborough. A very attractive aperitif wine to enjoy on its own, Squealing Pig's subtle complexities make it a serious partner with good food.

Squealing Pig are born and bred Awatere Valley, they understand the soils and aspects well and are on best terms with the finest growers. A collation of parcels from good vineyards which can yield harvests of Sauvignon Blanc displaying generous fruit flavours, splendid varietal definition and refreshing acidity are assembled into a single wine of exciting complexity and refined structure. Fruit is crushed and cold settled into temperature controlled fermenters, inoculated to wild and cultured yeasts before a cool vinification aimed at retaining all the brisk, vital expressions of the vineyard. Upon completion, the finished wine is promptly bottled with minimal handling to capture the essence of Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
Pale colour with a subtle lime green hue. Lifted and aromatic nose of tropical notes and kiwifruit, fresh Italian herbs and complex minerality. The palate is lively and long showing racy acidity, generous fruit flavours and mineral characters combine, creating a layered and complex Sauvignon Blanc. A delight to drink in its youth by itself or with meat salads and the freshest seafood.
