Auntsfield Single Vineyard Southern Valleys Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2018)

Estate-grown on the south side of the Wairau Valley, on the site where the region's first wines were made in the 1870s, the 2018 vintage (5*) was mostly handled in tanks; 5 per cent was fermented in old French oak casks. It is mouthfilling and dry (2.9 grams/litre of residual sugar), with excellent weight and depth of ripely herbaceous grapefruit/lime flavours. A powerful, finely poised wine with a long finish, it should age well.
