The wine backs up the popular view that 2015 delivered one of the best Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc harvests in years. A perfect cool climate growing season saw superb ripening conditions leading to an early harvest of fruit bursting with intense Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc characters.
Gunn Estate prides itself on crafting the best of wine classics as it strives to produce quality, regional New Zealand wines with varietal fruit expression and complexity. This new release delivers on all counts.
In the winery the emphasis was on fruit expression to draw out and maximise the vibrant and intense characters in the finished wine. Cold dejuicing, fermentation with carefully selected yeasts and gentle handling have delivered a Marlborough classic in the bottle.
Fresh and lively but undoubtedly approachable, this wine is a mouth-watering proposition for Sauvignon Blanc lovers over the summer ahead and may even convert a few non-believers.
Food match: Home made tuatua, mussel or pipi fritters with a fresh green salad.
