Yealands Singe Estate Sauvignon Blanc
With lashings of passion fruit, this is the Pornstar Martini of the Sauvignon Blanc line up. The grapes for this wine are picked from two parcels of fruit from Yealands' Seaview Vineyard, where Sauvignon Blanc vines are grown on New Zealand's most coastal vineyard. The vineyard is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough: high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker-skinned berry with intense fruit flavours. This wine is a blend of fruit from two different blocks on the property - one warmer, sheltered inland block and a coastal block. The wine brings together in harmony the diverse spectrums of the blocks; the warmer site contributing the expressive aromatics and the cooler site giving the mineral backbone and length. According to the winery, vital to their success is the nurturing and preservation of the land and their solid commitment always to put in just as much as they take out.
