Yealands Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Origin

Yealands Estate Sauvignon Blanc is from Marlborough New Zealand.  Peter Yealand’s vision also encompassed the foundation of a business that sets a gold standard in terms of environmental sustainability, from its carbon neutral winery to the widespread adoption of low-impact winemaking methods. Peter has a track record and his successes have been chronicled in a book “A Bloke For All Seasons – the Peter Yealands story”.

Style

Yealands Estate Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of dried thyme and gooseberry, spice and cream dominate the nose. The palate has a nettle and mineral acidity that all come together in perfect harmony. The mid palate is textured and rich, yet elegant.

Food Match

The wine would be a perfect match for a classic goat’s cheese salad, summer salads, fresh and cooked seafood.
