Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2017
SKU WB 30201358
Wither Hills is the joint project of winemakers Matt Large and Andrew Petrie alongside viticulturist Samantha Scarratt. Fruit from select vineyards throughout the Wairua Valley are vinified separately. The fruit is gently pressed, cold settled, racked and cool fermented. After fermentation the wines remain on light yeast lees to enhance palate feel and structure. The individual wines are then racked, blended, filtered and bottled.
Distinctly Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes vibrant ripe citrus notes, crunchy greens and hints of tropical guava on the nose. The palate is refined and elegant with superb natural fruit weight providing a juicy core of layered fruit, entwined with a salty textural acidity, vibrant citrus pith and a moreish dry chalky finish. A perfect match with plump oysters, green lip mussels, even prosciutto and rock melon.
