Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs show aromatic intensity derived from the cool climate and free draining soils. With a lively fragrance and crisp palate, citrus flavors and hints of fresh herbs lead to a zesty, mouth-watering finish. Ideal on its own or with seafood, Asian flavors and anything fresh, zingy or bold, this is a very food-friendly wine.
Winemaker's Notes: "We do one thing and do it well. As the chosen one, we pour all our knowledge and love into crafting this single Sauvignon Blanc that is consistently good, year on year. Grown and made exclusively in Marlborough, New Zealand, Twin Islands Sauvignon Blanc 2019 is the essence of the region. Marlborough is a sheltered, sunny, cool maritime climate known for intense, highly aromatic wines.
This Twin Islands Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from sites with free-draining stony soils, giving low cropping/low-vigor vines that ripen fruit relatively early, providing impressive flavor development every year. A blend of sites brings layers of complexity. Grapes were machine-harvested at night then fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to retain fresh aromatics and verve. Aromatic fermenting yeasts ensure classic intense citrus and grass on the nose and a fresh zingy palate.
