2019 Sauvignon Blanc
This wine displays lifted aromas of passionfruit, citrus and fresh herbs; soft with balanced acidity and attractive flavours. A fresh and elegant wine to be enjoyed with a seafood platter, chicken or a light vegetarian dish.
This Sauvignon Blanc was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
The 2019 Vintage season was remarkable with harvest times similar to last vintage, with fine weather and dry conditions. Winter rains had provided soil moisture for Budburst and the fruit set was generally good.
A very dry January to May led to even ripening and low disease pressure. Cool, dry nights resulted in excellent fruit flavours and good acidity. Baumés achieved were greater than previous years and fruit quality was excellent with yields average to below average.
