Ata Rangi Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Ata Rangi Sauvignon Blanc 2016

$24.00 NZDPer Bottle

Refreshingly vibrant and juicy, the 2016 Sauvignon shows enticing aromas of citrus blossom  and lemon grass with hints of jasmine and crisp, freshly-sliced fennel bulb. This latest offering is supple and bright and, at 12.5% alcohol, is wonderfully light on its feet. Around 5% of the fruit  was fermented in contact with its skins and held for two months, drawing out the more complex flavours that reside in the skins. The grape skins also contain phenolics which, combined with  the natural acidity, give the fresh back bone to this wine.  Adding further interest, 30% of the juice  was fermented in neutral oak barrels. Our naturally low yields, older vines, small canopies and judicious, labour-intensive hand picking of the entire crop are also factors in producing this  uniquely Martinborough style of Sauvignon Blanc. Delicious when fresh, though will age gracefully for 2-3 years or more.
