Description

For Auntsfield Estate Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2023, Auntsfield Estate states that its aim is “to produce a distinctive style of Sauvignon Blanc. The style is aimed towards texture, complexity and length, balancing the typical Marlborough fruit spectrum and aromatics with richness and mouth feel.” and once again it has achieved its aim. This is a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc but with extra complexity and minerality than most others. The pungency of Auntsfield Sauvignon Blanc bursts out of the bottle, intense fruit aromas of passion fruit, gooseberry and canteloupe melon with hints of lime and nectarine. The aromas are replicated in the concentrated flavours – it is leaning towards tropical fruits but they are not at all overripe fruits, much more subtle and the long finish is predominantly white peach, gooseberries and lime with a mineral edge from the ancient Greywacke rock and Loess clay soils of the vineyard. Auntsfield Estate Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2023 has good acidity and will develop further in the next two to three years. It also has a lovely, really rounded mouthfeel thanks in part to lees contact.

 

Auntsfield Estate was bought by the Cowley family in the early 1990s when it was still an unplanted cattle farm. However when they researched the property they discovered it had actually produced wine from 1873 through to 1925 which made it the first commercial winery in Marlborough planted some 100 years before anywhere else. They planted blocks of the property with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir taking real care to select the best plots for each. They now have around 65 hectares planted on fantastic terroir which gives the wine a fine minerality with wonderful texture and definition.

 

 

Producer's Notes

COLOUR: Pale straw

 

AROMA: Lifted and pure aromas of fresh passionfruit, ripe citrus and lime. Notes of dried herbs, lemongrass, jalapeno and blackcurrant add pungency and intensity to the aromatics.

 

PALATE: Powerful, tight and elegant. This wine displays intense ripe fruit flavours of passionfruit juice and white peach, with citrus notes of lime and mandarin pith. The palate has intense concentration and generous weight, balanced by an underlying minerality and tight structure to shape a wine with lively tension and textural balance.

How to enjoy

Recommended with fish, shellfish, chicken, pork and roast ham. It will stand up to richer dishes better than some other white wines.
