Southern Dawn Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Southern Dawn Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows a complex aroma of grapefruit, melon and tropical fruit. The palate shows ripe tropical fruit flavours and a lengthy citrus finish.
Sauvignon Blanc is the most famous varietal of New Zealand, and is typically a very crisp aromatic wine with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit and cut grass.
The white wines of New Zealand tend to be slightly sweeter than those from Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, and are hugely influenced by the growing conditions of the country.
The fruit for this wine comes from our Marlborough vineyards located in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of the Marlborough district.
The fruit was pressed off skins soon after harvest in Marlborough, with the juice then being transported to Katikati for fermentation. Select yeasts are used, which combined contribute to the aromatic complexity of the wine.
The unique terroir of the Marlborough region features a variety of soil compositions. These vary from alluvial free-draining, to a more clay/ loam soil as found in the Southern Hills or a silt/loam combination as located nearer to Cloudy Bay and the sea.
Marlborough is not just home to our fine Sauvignon Blanc, but also grows delightful Pinot Noir. It is a truly superb location, and one to be popped on the ‘must-visit’ list, especially if you are one that enjoys the ‘wine experience’.
Southern Dawn Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc highlights the distinctive flavours of the southern hemisphere’s volcanic terroir.
