2017 Uenuku New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

The growing region for this acidic and minerally Sauvignon Blanc is defined by maritime influences and alluvial soils, and the end result is a fresh and vibrant expression of the variety, with high-toned tropical and stone-fruit aromas and flavors. Crisp and driven, this is a perfect aperitif, but would make a bright companion for light shellfish and salads as well.

Did You Know?

When yeast finishes fermenting a wine, it dies and falls to the bottom of the tank or barrel, where it becomes known as lees. Wines often taste better the longer they are left in contact with their lees.
