Overview

Sauvignon Blanc is quite rightly New Zealand’s outstanding contribution to the wine world.

The reasons are varied but often come back to fruit purity and clarity of flavour that, at their best, symbolize the dramatics of our land of mountains and sea. These aromatic high notes can range from the exotic tropical fruits to verdant green vegetables; the best examples sit midway, expressing the x-factor appeal of passion-fruit or grapefruit.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

Pungently aromatic in the varietal sweetpea/ passion-fruit spectrum. This cocktail of fruit has a base of tropical melon.

The 2011 Left Field has a little more richness than the 2010.

The grapes were harvested at a slightly higher brix level whilst retaining the wonderful snow pea and tropical flavours.

The winemaking was focused around preserving those notes and ensuring the wine was bottled dry with the seashore freshness of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc style.
