Mystery Creek Wines Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Our Sauvignon Blanc is grown on stony riverbed terraces on the Eastern bank of Marlborough's lower Waihopai Valley, a tributary of the larger Wairau river.The lower Waihopai typically exhibits older alluvial soils, lower rainfall and slightly less wind than the Wairau plains.Combined with cool nights and warm days, the location provides superb conditions for the growing of Sauvignon Blanc with intense flavours and acid backbone.
Hand picked fruit was whole bunch pressed and the juice was settled overnight before being racked off heavy lees to French oak barriques for fermentation. A mix of wild fermentation and selected yeast was used.
This wine exhibits pungent rockmelon (cantaloupe),passionfruit and grapefruit aromas complemented by subtle capsicum and green bean notes typical of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.The strength
of the wine is in its purity and balance between the powerful aromatics and the supporting acid structure.
This wine will pair well with any seafood and simply seasoned white meat dish; however, try pairing with any salty or sour accented flavours such as soy sauce or vinaigrette based dressings for a more exciting match.
