Auntsfield Sauvignon 2017 (Marlborough, New Zealand)

Of the 39,000 hectares of New Zealand's vineyard, we can say that almost half are concentrated in the north of the Southern Island: in the Marlborough sub-region. The dryness and hours of sunshine in this area make it possible to grow grapes and white varieties like Chardonnay, Riesling or the New Zealand's king: the Sauvignon Blanc. The Autsfield's Sauvignon comes from Greywacke rock and Loess clay soils and the result is this:

Very pale colour, almost silveryand without defaults. His vintage is justified. Very intense nose, an aromatic orgy with grapefruit, mineral, citrus fruit and mentholated hints where the grapefruit abuses. Very present the cold skins maceration's work. Dry entry in mouth, nice mineral and slender development. A vivid sensation evokating herbal and fresh citrus fruit pressed. Long and very length finish with saline echoes in lingering.

A historical vineyard in New Zealand cause was in 1873 when it was stabliseh being the firs one in the country. David Herd is the man and the name behind that project and a pioneer who put Marlborough and NZ on the map. After David's death, his family took over from generation to generation getting a good reputation. This white wine has a price of $ 15 to 25, ideal to open with friends and enjoy it slowly on a sunny day.
