Convergence Sauvignon Blanc 2019

$20.49

A convergence of flavours from vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere valleys, this is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at its finest. An abundance of bell pepper, fennel and crushed tomato leaf aromas mingle with subtle notes of tangelo, snow pea and nettle. Dry and saline, the flinty yet lively palate has a lovely creamy texture and a juicy smooth finish.

Notes

After a beautifully warm but excessively dry summer, harvest began three weeks early. It was a stunning vintage with pristine fruit, small berries, and great concentration. Harvested early morning and lightly pressed, this juice was fermented cool, predominately in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and character. A small portion was fermented in concrete egg tank to add a grainy texture to the palate. Both portions were aged on light yeast lees for three months to gain complexity and increase mouthfeel.
