Wild River Sauvignon Blanc 2019
A stunning Sauvignon Blanc with ripe tropical flavours, great fruit concentration with a slight sweetness well balanced against crisp acidity.
Gold, New Zealand International Wine
4 stars, Bob Campbell
The grapes are grown on well drained gravel soils. All vines are grafted onto 3309 rootstock which limits crop and enhances flavour intensity.
Wine making notes
Traditional New Zealand wine making techniques were used to retain as much varietal character as possible. Fruit was pressed to tank and cold settled for 48 hours, then racked to tank and inoculated with selected yeast strains. The wine spent a short period on yeast lees after fermentation before being stabilized, filtered and bottled.
Food and wine matching
With gooseberry and tropical flavours it will tolerate some chilli or mild curry spices. It suits mildly acidic cheeses such as goat’s cheese, feta or sharp cheddars.
