Three Brooms Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Blind River Vineyard, Marlborough, New Zealand

2018 vintage – A complex and intriguing, incredibly intense nose – the perfect juxtaposition of elegant super ripe citrus, pineapple and passion fruit folded in a gentle aromatic blanket, completed by subtle minerality. A bright, intense and textural attack with bright, fresh, yet soft passion fruit and citrus fruit flavors. A powerful structure adds weight and continues onto a finish that is complex and incredibly long. This is a truly elegant wine that is, at the same time deep, powerful and subtle.” – From the Winery. The Blind River Vineyard has naturally lower yields and cooler, windier climate. In the winery, low fermentation temperatures and careful monitoring and multiple daily tastings. Longer lees contact and mixing the lees through the wine regularly resulted in a full mouth feel and a broad richness.
