Stoney River Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough 2019
From New Zealand’s famed wine region and an excellent vintage year comes another stunning Sauvignon Blanc from Stoney River. Marlborough’s temperate climate, long sunshine hours and cool nights provide the perfect growing conditions for this centuries’ old grape variety. Originally at home in Bordeaux, Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is now considered among the best, if not the best, in the world.
“Beautifully ripe and aromatic, the inviting bouquet shows passionfruit, green rock melon, apple and lime zest characters, leading to a vibrant palate that is punchy and flavoursome. The wine offers terrific fruit power and intensity, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2021.” - July 2019.
