Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc 2019

stablished in 1978, the Rose family estate vineyards are situated on the banks of the Wairau River (pronounced “why-row”). Pioneers in the Marlborough region, the Rose family selected vineyard sites along the banks of the Wairau River to grow their grapes. The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from six family vineyards across the Marlborough region, all located on the northern side of the Wairau Valley: Home Block, Riverlore, Rapaura, Longbend, The Angler, and Burnside. Intense lifted notes of ripe tropical fruits and citrus on the nose. Refined and elegant, displaying a finely textured palate with flavors of guava and stone fruit resulting in a wonderfully expressive, fresh, dry finish.
