Church Road Hawke's Bay Sauvignon Blanc (2021)

Aiming for a style that is 'more refined and softer than a typical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc', this wine is based principally on fruit from Pernod Ricard NZ's inland, elevated, cool site at Matapiro (300 metres above sea level). Bright, light lemon/green, the 2021 vintage (4*) is aromatic and full-bodied, with good intensity of vibrant passionfruit/lime flavours, leesy notes adding a touch of complexity, and a dry, crisp finish.
