Auntsfield Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2022
The Auntsfield Estate continues the proud heritage of Marlborough’s first vineyard and winery which was established in 1873. Their Single Vineyard wines are made from grapes grown exclusively on the estate. Auntsfield aim to produce a distinctive style of Sauvignon Blanc, aimed towards texture, complexity and length, balancing the typical Marlborough fruit spectrum and aromatics with richness and mouth feel. Their single-vineyard Sauvignon Blanc has intense and pure aromas of fresh passionfruit, and ripe citrus. Notes of dried herbs, mandarin peel and fresh floral notes give intensity to the aromatics. On the palate this wine displays intense ripe fruit flavours of passionfruit and white peach, and tropical fruits with fresh citrus and citrus peel. It is intensely concentrated with generous weight, balanced by an underlying minerality and tight structure to shape a wine with lively tension and textural balance.
