Opawa Sauvignon Blanc 2018
100% Sauvignon blanc from Marlborough, with the fruit sourced from Opawa vineyard that is on Gravel soils, that asborbs the sun during the day, which radiates back in to the grapes at night.
Grapes are machine harvested at night and pressed immediately at the winery. A cool fermentation takes place with a small portion fermented in large oak cuves adding a extra textual element to the wine.
This wine is bright lemon colour with a hint of green. Exotic perfumes leap from the glass with vivacious aromas of citrus peel, passion fruit skins and hints of fresh kaffir lime leaves. The palate is refreshing and intense, displaying crisp citrus notes and passion fruit, this wine is well balanced and focused with crisp acidity and a long, juicy, mouth-watering finish.
