Little Darling Organic Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc 2017
The grapes are sourced from organic vineyards in the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. These grapes build up a natural
resistance to the elements. The skins become thicker producing more flavour.
The growing season was warm with the last month before picking being fantastic conditions. The grapes were picked early
April and allocated into different parcels for fermentation allowing a range of components for blending.
Parcels of wine were selected for blending that produced a varietal and classic Sauvignon Blanc. All components were kept
on yeast lees as long as possible until blending, adding greater flavour and softness to the wine.
The grapes and wine are fully BioGro certified organic.
Typical aromas of tropical fruit, passionfruit and lime show through on the nose. It has great drinkability due to the
freshness on the palate. The tropical fruits continue on in the mouth with hints of Melon and citrus which adds great
length of flavour.
This wine will drink well anytime complementing white meats, salads and seafood.
