Alpine Rift Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Marlborough, New Zealand
Dry white wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand. 13.0% ABV.
Sourced from the historic Auntsfield vineyard in the Southern Valley, Alpine Rift Sauvignon Blanc carves a new path in refinement and elegance. Low-yielding fruit from one of Marlborough’s best vineyards is tempered with a portion of wild fermentation in old oak barrels, bringing a new level of richness and complexity to this crisp, classic style. Hints of nectarine, blackcurrant leaf, and passionfruit on the nose are underpinned by a ripe, richly textured palate, and crisp, citrus finish. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at its absolute best!
