Deep Down Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2021)

Certified organic, the 2021 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard wine, harvested from 22 year-old vines on the south side of the Wairau Valley and partly (35 per cent) fermented in old French oak puncheons. Made "to celebrate texture and concentration rather than high volume aromatics and acidity", it is a ripely scented, medium to full-bodied wine, with fresh, vigorous, tropical fruit flavours, showing excellent depth, and a crisp, dry (2.6 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
