Starborough Sauvignon Blanc 750ml

Store Pickup and Local Delivery Only

$11.93

The Marlborough district of New Zealand’s South Island has set the world standard for crisp Sauvignon Blanc wines. Marlborough is on the east coast of the island, with a ridge of mountains to the west, limiting rainfall and making it one of the sunniest areas in the country. The landscape is pierced by deep, fjord-like bays, called “sounds,” which enhance the maritime influence and extend the growing season for wine grapes. The long, cool growing season helps the wines of this region to develop rich layers of flavor with a distinctive, refreshing character.

Viticulture Notes

In the 2011 growing season, warmer than average temperatures in November and December produced larger bunches and bigger berries in Marlborough. Dry conditions and cooler weather into late February created an excellent harvest, allowing the Sauvignon Blanc grapes to retain their natural acidity and build concentrated flavors.

Winemakers Notes

The grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, and lightly pressed in order to avoid extracting bitter tannins from the skins. The must was fermented in upright stainless steel tanks at very low temperatures for up to 30 days. The wine was then filtered prior to bottling.
