Marlborough experiences growing conditions for Sauvignon Blanc that are second to none. The distinctive pungency and zesty fruit flavours have established a unique style that is famous the world over. Abundant sunshine, cool nights and a long growing season translates into vibrant wines with distinctive flavours and character. Essenze is an intensely rejuvenating experience by virtue of its alluring scents of gooseberry and green vegetable up front, followed by a steely, mineral palate which finishes satisfyingly dry and laden with lingering fruits.
Sauvignon Blanc has been selected from excellent vineyard sites throughout the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough. The Awatere Valley contributes a steely and racy acidity, while the lower Wairau Valley vineyards provide powerful and intense fruit with lifted passionfruit. The upper Wairau Valley vineyards around the Delta area display ripe and refined melon citrus flavours. The fruit was harvested at various levels of ripeness to achieve a well balanced wine. Once crushed and pressed, the juices are naturally cold settled for several days before being racked clean to fermentation. A slow, cool vinification preserves the aromatics and freshness before the parcels are assembled into the final wine.
TASTING NOTES
Bright and vibrant pale green. Bouquets of luscious summer/ tropical fruits, hints of herbaceousness and grassiness. Bursting with lifted fruit salad aromas, passionfruit and sea breeze undertones. Refreshing, intense palate with good structure and excellent balance. Flavours of gooseberry and lemongrass, snow pea, grapefruit and thistle. Essenze finishes with a crisp, zesty minerality. To accompany prawn caesar salad with char grilled mediterranean vegetables.
