Product Description

Background: Hunky Dory Sauvignon Blanc is a succulent Marlborough style of wine offering tropical fruit notes packed with fresh gooseberry flavours. This wine has a full flavoured lingering finish. Winemaking: Grapes are sourced primarily from two vineyard sites. The lower Rapaura block provides richly flavoured Sauvignon Blanc grapes with a wide breadth of tropical, passion fruit and greengage plum characters. The other main site is on the northern terraces of the Awatere River in the Lower Dashwood. The grapes from this vineyard showed the excellent gooseberry minerality and fine acidity typical of the Awatere Valley. This component provides a firm structure to the blend. Food Matches: Hunky Dory Sauvignon Blanc is designed for casual dining and can be enjoyed as a refreshing aperitif. It is excellent with salads, seafood (especially oysters!) or anytime a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc is called for. Residual Sugar: 4.3g/l TA: 7.7g/l pH: 3.18 Alcohol: 13%

Region Description:

When the first growers planted grapes in Marlborough in the 1970s (there is evidence of plantings as early as 1870s), it is unlikely they would have foreseen the extent of the growth and fame that the region’s wine industry would achieve, based upon a single varietal called Sauvignon Blanc. The distinctive pungency and zest fruit flavours of the first Marlborough wines, in particular Sauvignon Blanc, captured the imagination of the country's winemakers as well as international wine commentators and consumers and sparked an unparalleled boom in vineyard development. Worldwide interest in Marlborough wines, particularly Sauvignon Blanc, has continued to fuel that regional wine boom.
