Auntsfield Single Vineyard is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the prestigious Marlborough region of the South Island. The 2019 vintage made the prestigious Air NZ Fine Wines of New Zealand List and was rated 5 stars by Sam Kim.

Fruit was handpicked, whole bunch pressed and fermented in seasoned oak barrels, adding texture and length to the wine. The 2019 vintage displays distinctive characteristics of ripeness, texture and minerality; all qualities unique to the ancient Greywacke rock and Loess clay soils of the vineyard. Auntsfield was Marlborough’s first vineyard and winery established in 1873.

"A superbly styled sauvignon offering brilliant fruit intensity together with focus, poise and structure; the beautifully aromatic bouquet shows passionfruit, green rockmelon, kiwifruit and kaffir lime characters, followed by a concentrated palate that is bright, pristine and lingering. The wine exhibits excellent fruit purity backed by vibrant acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
