2016 Aotea Sauvignon Blanc, Seifried

The Brightwater Sauvignon Blanc vines are grown in an extremely stony area of the vineyard, where water and nutrient levels are low. This helps us to restrict the plants vigour and to crop at low levels. To further enhance the aromatics we removed leaves to allow light penetration and air movement around the fruiting zone.

The 2016 Aotea Sauvignon Blanc has a powerful varietal nose. Ripe fruit elements with grapefruit and tropical melon are bright and flavoursome alongside crisp nettle and hints of blackcurrant. Well balanced natural acidity runs the length of the wine and supports layers of flavours on the palate.
