Sherwood Estate Sauvignon Blanc
The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc displays fresh, lively gooseberry, passionfruit and citrusy aromas on the nose with a nice tropical note at the end resembling guava and passionfruit. The palate is structured and intense with a fresh tropical finish. A wine to be enjoyed over the next two to three years.
The Sherwood Estate Signature Family 2013 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown on our twenty acre Rowley Crescent vineyard in Marlborough. The fruit this year was very flavoursome with grassy and ripe citrus notes.
The fruit was harvested late April 2013 in the cool of the night and transported to our winery in one tonne bins where it was gently pressed. The free run juice and light pressings were then settled and cool fermented for an average of 21 days. Following three months of yeast lees contact the various parcels of Sauvignon Blanc were blended together, lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
