Marlborough | New Zealand

Forefathers Sauvignon Blanc is a single- vineyard wine produced from the 19 acre Wax Eye Vineyard on Hawksbury Road in Marlborough. The glacial soils offer the vines good water retention and this glacial minerality often shows itself in the finished wine. Machine harvested at 2:00 am for maximum cold temperatures, immediately pressed and inoculated. 100% stainless steel cold fermented. Aged on the lees for 3 months to accentuate creaminess.


2021 Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Note:A style that pairs well with the US Mediterranean food culture, our Sauv Blanc shows vibrant and fresh citrus aromatics, with white peach and passionfruit and underlying tropical stone fruits. Demonstrating minerality and mouth-watering acidity, this wine displays a youthful and dynamic palate with a pleasing fresh passionfruit note that lingers.
