Cable Bay Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

$24.00 $21.60

This is a complex and vibrant wine, conveying all the characteristics of a faultless  growing season by the Awatere river. Rocket flowers, passionfruit, papaya, lime  and smokey chicory aromas come together to form a wonderful nose. The palate is finely textured, with a chalky mineral element giving it maximum dimension, focused acidity and great overall balance. Refreshing and fulfilling, it is a lovely expression of our vineyard. Match with South East Asian style dishes, fresh and vibrant flavours.


The grapes were harvested early in the morning, and led straight into the winery. The fruit was pressed straight away, and the vibrant juice was run to a stainless steel tank for settling. This juice was then fermented at cool temperatures using neutral yeast, allowing the varietal fruit flavours to be fully expressed. The wine was left to rest on light yeast lees for five months, and as a result it developed a lovely creamy consistency on the palate. After blending we let the wine integrate together for a few months in tank before bottling with minimal filtration.
