Sauvignon Blanc

Craggy Range 'Te Muna Road' Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc

750 ML


Product Description

Pale greenish straw in colour. Rich aromatics of fresh lime juice, elderflower, lemongrass, grilled citrus and ripe nectarine. Complex and intriguing. The palate is concentrated and dense, yet retains remarkable linearity and focus. Zesty citrus, stonefruit, herb and floral flavours fill the mouth, a fine chalky mineral texture tightens and focuses the finish.


Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Region: New Zealand

Region Description:

Although it makes just one-tenth the wine of neighboring Australia, this country’s production is increasing every year. Its white wines are generally unoaked with pronounced flavor, rich texture, and high acidity. The South Island’s renowned Sauvignon Blanc is so distinctive that it can be compared to asparagus, limes, grass, or passion fruit. This region also excels in intense Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Cabernet Sauvignon grows well on the North Island, yielding an intense, berry fruit. There the Pinot Noirs are rich and the Chardonnays are soft and ripe but well balanced.
