2017 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
To say I’m thrilled with this wine is to put it mildly! I’ve always loved New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and jumped at the chance to go to New Zealand and make it. Having been there, I love NZ Sauvignon Blanc more than ever.
It is a beautiful land, populated by kind, hard-working people. The weather is great, the scenery spectacular, the land fruitful.
The fruit comes off the Auntsfield Vineyard at the base of the Wither Hills in the Wairau Valley.
The particular qualities of the 2017 Sineann Marlborough SB that captivates are the sheer intensity of fruit on the palate, the mid-palate creaminess and the richness of the finish – along with the beautiful natural acidity.
We attribute the remarkable fruit and lengthy finish to the special care the fruit receives. This is a rare, hand-harvested New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, cluster-sorted. It makes a difference!
We’ve tasted through many of the better Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs from 2017 and this is one of the best.
