Dunleavy Sauvignon Blanc 2015
As bold and authentic as the family whose name they bear, the wines chosen for the Dunleavy Varietal Series are quite simply the best of breed.
A classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from a great vintage. Featuring notes of freshly cut pear, grapefruit and passionfruit, with a hint of bell pepper.
This wine has super intensity and purity on the bouquet. The palate is rich and concentrated, but balanced by a zesty acidity, bringing structure and length to the wine.
A cool long spring meant that the growing season got off to a slow start. Things started to look up during flowering when the weather got a little warmer and settled. After fruit set the weather was by and large hot and dry resulting in super ripeness at harvest. An exceptional year for Sauvignon Blanc.
