Ten Sisters Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Ten Sisters Sauvignon Blanc has a delightfully fragrant and complex bouquet with underlying citrus aromas. Single-vineyard sourcing allows the terroir its full expression and elicits a purity of flavors. The palate is bright and elegant with refined acidity and ripe flavors. It has good concentration and length, excellent structure, and a well-balanced finish. The sauvignon blanc is given extended lees contact — more than the majority of Marlborough sauvignon blancs — to create complexity and to bring out fruit flavors. Excellent on its own or with seafood, chicken, pork, salads, and Asian food. No sugar added.
Focused and intense, offering juicy fresh grated ginger, Meyer lemon, green apple and white grapefruit flavors that show a hint of beeswax, with plenty of verve and energy on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.—M.W
