Lake Road Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough 2019
Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this wine were selected for their intensity of fruit flavours. They were fermented cool in tanks at around 12-13˚C without malo-lactic fermentation and bottled early to capture their fresh varietal characters.
Careful vineyard management over the season and a short, quick harvest period ensured ripe fruit with good varietal character.
"Pristine and wonderfully lifted, the wine shows passionfruit, kiwifruit, nectarine and lemon peel characters on the nose, followed by a lively palate that’s juicy and zesty. It’s youthfully attractive with plenty of tasty flavours."
