Created By A Glacier

Created by a glacier, Auntsfield's "Single Vineyard" is located in a valley surrounded by the ocean. The coastal influence and cooling mirco-climate provide a long, slow ripening period reminiscent - but uniquely different from - a Loire Valley Sancerre.

As the oldest winery in New Zealand, the vines reach deep into the soil extracting exotic minerality that cannot be replicated anywhere.

What do we love about this wine?

Perfect for spring and summer, it is loaded with gooseberry, elderflower, and freshly cut grass notes all of which intermingle with tropical fruit, lively grapefruit and fresh herbs. Refreshing and vibrant, the layers unfold with added notes of peach core, mango and lemon-lime zest with a dry, lingering finish.

How do they achieve such character? Yields are kept intentionally low with only the most expressive fruit going into this cuvee.

AUNTSFIELD WINERY

"The Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted and pure aromas of fresh passionfruit, ripe citrus and lime. Notes of dried herbs, lemongrass, jalapeno and blackcurrant add pungency and intensity to the aromatics. Powerful, tight and elegant. This wine displays intense ripe fruit flavors of passionfruit juice and white peach, with citrus notes of lime and mandarin pith. The palate has intense concentration and generous weight, balanced by an underlying minerality and tight structure to shape a wine with lively tension and textural balance."
