2021 Nuku Linden Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Hawke's Bay

This wine begins to release its aromas after a couple of minutes in glass with scents of gooseberry, peach and fresh herbs. There's a savory dried herb seam then scents of apple and lemongrass, grapefruit and baking spices. Fruits and herb flavors are mirrored on the palate with a salivating acid line accentuating some juicy fleshy textures and some barrel spice moments, a touch of lees complexity all leading to a balanced, even finish. Overall a fresh, lively example with a Hawkes Bay signature of fruit then herb, some soft spice and mineral finish, Cameron Douglas MS.

Winemaker's notes

Harvested off our Estate vineyards tucked into the Esk Valley. Low cropping, dry farmed old vines produce a rich and textured Sauvignon Blanc. Partially barrel fermented and aged for 6 months on lees to produce a rich and silky wine.
