Auntsfield Single Vineyard Southern Valleys Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2020)

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 distinctive 2020 vintage (5*) was mostly handled in tanks; a small portion of the blend was hand-picked and fermented in old oak casks. A stylish, full-bodied and sweet-fruited wine, it has vibrant, dry, ripely herbaceous flavours, fresh acidity, and impressive intensity, delicacy and complexity. Best drinking mid-2021+.
