Description

2016 Hells Gate Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker’s Comments

The winemaking intent is to focus on the distinctive fruit flavours that make New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc an icon wine style. The lighter soils in the vineyard add fresh aromatics and a hint of mineral character. This wine represents the best expression of fruit-driven flavours from the excellent 2016 vintage. Enjoy with chicken, pork, seafood or vegetarian dishes.
