Sliding Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Not Australian, but this New Zealand wine is far too good to pass up on!

The vibrant Sauvignon Blanc vines stand out from the harsh dusty environment of Sliding Hill. These vines display the riper characters of fruit that Marlborough has to offer, balanced by citrus flavours. The wine is deliciously ripe and concentrated, lush and rounded with a lingering finish.

Colour: Pale straw.

Aroma: Lifted aromas of passionfruit, ripe nectarine, citrus and gooseberry are complemented with fresh herbal and floral notes.

Palate: the palae is concentrated and varietal with excellent weight and harmony. Intense flavours of passionfruit and gooseberry give the wine a rich texture, which is balanced with a fresh acidity giving the wine drive and enery carrying to a long clean finish.

Winemakers notes: Gentle pressing of the grapes followed by a cool fermentation with culture yeasts in stainless tanks produces the bright, fresh, fruit aromas and flavours which characterise Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. This is complimented by a small proportion of grapes that were fermented in seasoned oak barrels and subjected to traditional winemaking practices; hand picking, whole bunch pressed adding texture and length to the final wine.

Viticulturist notes: The 2019 season was characterised by hot and very dry weather. Regular winter rainfall and a warm spring got the vines off to a great start. Summer followed a pattern of hot days and cool nights with lots of sunshine, perfect for vibrant and pure fruit characters. The natural vineyard yields were very low. Vineyard work focused around opening canopies and manipulating leaf to shade the fruit from the hot midday sun. This allowed the fruit to ripen slowly for optimum ripeness in early Autumn.
