Dunleavy Sauvignon Blanc 2016
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.
Classically Marlborough, our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc immediately shows passionfruit and ripe tropical fruit aromas with a touch of herbaceous capsicum. It has a very refreshing multilayered palate of citrus and tropical fruits. These flavours and aromas leave a fresh lingering finish on the palate making it a full satisfying wine with balanced acidity.
Spring was dry to start the growing season and late frosts in early December threaten but didn’t impact and fruit set was great. Some rain during the growing season in January provided plenty of nutrients and juicy weight to the fruit. A hot and dry summer delivered a harvest as smooth as can be with continuous fruit supply keeping the winery busy. Overall we received slightly above average yields with optimum quality fruit.
