Misty Cove Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Misty Cove Estate Sauvignon Blanc

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • Estate grown, handmade Sauvignon from sustainably farmed plots in Marlborough’s Wairau and Waihopai Valleys!
  • The best QPR we’ve ever come across in Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc.

Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Elaboration: Harvested in the cool of the night then cool fermented with selected yeasts strains to enhance varietal characteristics. Bottled early to capture fruit freshness and zing.

Tasting Notes: This refreshing and tasty Sauvignon Blanc is sure to please with a bouquet of ripe passionfruit, kiwifruit, rockmelon and lime peel aromas on the nose.

PRODUCER BACKGROUND

If you know us well at Grape you know of our Dutch connections, and everyone in the Dutch wine trade knows Andrew Bailey as the remarkable professional cricket player who built an equally successful wine distribution business while living there during his sporting career. Andrew grew up in New Zealand, has returned home, and farms 242 hectares of vineyard in what he likes to call the misty coves of Marlborough. We’ve never come across this level of quality of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc for the price.
