Sauvignon Blanc 2008

The tasting notes

Sauvignon Blanc - Click to purchase

Central Otago's Domain Road Vineyard, near Bannockburn, is sited in a sheltered valley that provides a unique micro-climate, ideal for producing premium wines.

Our Sauvignon Blanc vines are planted partially on the top of Templers Hill, an area left untouched by 19th century gold miners, and partially on Doctors Flat where mining has exposed mineral-rich clays from a 2-million year old lake bed.

The Wine

Our 2008 vintage displays typical Sauvignon Blanc aromas of gooseberries, cut grass and bell peppers with citrus undertones. Approximately 12.5% of our 2008 Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in old oak barriques to add another layer of complexity to the wine. A hint of residual sugar balances the wine’s natural acidity.

Enjoy with seafood or as an aperitif.
