"Fresh and lively notes of nettles and grass, across some fresh limes. The palate delivers a neat and more savory array of crisp lime and green-mango flavors. Fresh acidity is a highlight. Drink now. "

Auntsfield Estate aims to produce a distinctive style of Sauvignon Blanc. The style is aimed towards texture, complexity, and length, balancing the typical Marlborough fruit spectrum and aromatics with richness and mouthfeel.

Pale straw green in color, the 2017 Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted and pure aromas of fresh passionfruit, ripe citrus, and lime. Notes of dried herbs, lemongrass, jalapeno and blackcurrant add pungency and intensity to the aromatics. Powerful, tight and elegant. This wine displays intense ripe fruit flavors of passionfruit juice and white peach, with citrus notes of lime and mandarin pith. The palate has intense concentration and generous weight, balanced by an underlying minerality and tight structure to shape a wine with lively tension and textural balance.

Beautiful pairing with an oriental chicken salad with yogurt and citrus dressing, grilled lemon herb chicken breast, roast duck breast on sliced poached pears.
