Misty Cove Landmark Sauvignon Blanc 2021
- Stock: Out Of Stock
- Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
Initial impression verges on luscious, but the fine, lively acidity kicks in and balances subtle sweetness and gives the wine a crisp, dry finish. A tangy sauvignon with pleasing purity and an ethereal texture.
Misty Cove’s Landmark Sauvignon Blanc is deeply influenced by old world winemaking techniques. Lovingly handcrafted in small batch quantities, we crafted this wine to reflect the “Landmark” – the attributes and characteristics of the Fareham Lane vineyard from which it originated.
Harvested at night to preserve the purity and intensity of flavours. The wine was further fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks after gentle pressing; and we used the best strains of yeast most suited to the distinctive aromatics of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Lees ageing (6 months) prior to bottling has developed mid- palate weight adding to the wine’s intense fruit characters.
