Matua Sauvignon Blanc 750mL
This is the wine our viticulture and winemaking teams get really excited about – it showcases what the vintage has been like for Marlborough’s most famous varietal! We pick our Sauvignon Blanc grapes from over 60 vineyards across Marlborough, encompassing the Wairau and Awatere Valley sub-regions. So the wine is always a complete expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc! In 2019 we processed the Sauvignon Blanc parcels at the winery in batches before cool fermentation in stainless steel with our ‘house style’ yeasts. Then the wine was left to sit on light lees to build texture and a luscious mouth feel before final blending and finding its way into the bottle for you to enjoy.
2019 was hot and dry, creating riper and more complex styles with less acid structure.
HOW IT TASTES
This classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is deliciously pure, bursting with ripe lemon citrus notes and a hint of vibrant passionfruit and basil. The palate is fresh and vibrant with concentrated blackcurrant leaf
and a hint of classic cut-grass and green melon. So refreshing,
you’ll be left wanting more.
At fridge temperature, for about 45 minutes.
HOW WE DRINK IT
