Astrolabe Kekerengu Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2015

100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Taihoa and Sleepers Vineyard of the Kekerengu Coast sub-region of Marlborough.

Fruit was harvested in cool conditions, destemmed and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact. Clear, cold settled juice was fermented in stainless steel vats at low temperatures using neutral yeast strains. A small portion of hand-picked, high solids and wild barrel ferment wine was blended in to add subtle texture and complexity.

Winemaker's Comments

Aromas of lime rind, pink grapefruit, ripe gooseberries, lemongrass and lemon balm. The palate is full-bodied, round and concentrated with some green tropical fruit and peach and a crisp dry finish.
