More information

Seaview Vineyard

Awatere Valley

Carefully selected parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from our Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley were used to craft this wine.

Growing Conditions

Consistently warm and dry, with cool nights creating a long growing season and allowing optimum ripeness.

An approachable Sauvignon Blanc- highly aromatic and vibrant on the palate. A real crowd pleaser.

Winemaker's Notes

Cool Fermentation

The parcels were harvested individually over a two week period. At the winery, the fruit was crushed, destemmed and gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 72 hours, after which the clear juice was racked off, followed by a long cool fermentation in stainless Steel to capture and enhance the fruit flavours.

Each of the individual parcels were fermented separately using a range of selected yeasts, after which the wine was blended, stabilised and filtered in preparation for bottling.

The Sauvignon Blanc from this vintage is showing the wonderful typicity that our Seaview Vineyard is known for.

Our multi-award-winning Sauvignon is fantastic on its own as well as with all types of seafood.

Excellent with both fresh and cooked seafood dishes such as oysters, prawns, green lip mussels and fish.

Once again, Yealands is brighter, crispier and more citrus than its rivals. I'm not a fan of bubble bath and fruit salad sauvignon, so this leaner, meaner model really appeals to me.

Whiffs of smoke and honeysuckle add an aromatic accent to the core of peach, pear and mango flavors in this white, which is juicy on the long, crisp, clean finish. Drink now. 277,777 cases made.

A wonderfully fresh and concentrated glass with lovely tree/citrus fruit aromas and flavours. Pure with a good texture and impressive length. This has personality and tension, and it curls on and out through the finish.
