Sherwood Signature Sauvignon Blanc 2016 - Last Bottle

90 pts Wine Spectator - Accents of slate show mid-palate, leading to a long, savory finish filled with dried herbal details.

Tasting Notes

The signature wine of Sherwood estate, this Sauvignon Blanc is beautifully poised with a complex array of flavors - gooseberry, grapefruit, guava, limes and touches of mineral. Tightly woven with a crisp, tangy melange of tropical fruits countered with a lean racy finish that refreshes the palate.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Spectator
Fragrant orange blossom and crisp lemon meringue flavors are juicy and bright, with plenty of intensity and charm on the finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases made.

90 pts Wine Enthusiast
From the east coast of the south island, this is a tangy, medium- to full-bodied wine with lots to offer outside the more predictable characters. The nose is an intriguing combo of stone fruit, citrus and lime with buttered green beans, wet wool, hay and a copper penny tang. A little oily in texture, there's a salty, wet-stone flecked acidity to brighten things up.



Winemaker Notes

The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and transported to our winery in one tonne bins where it was gently pressed. Only the free run juice and light pressings were settled and cool fermented for an average of 21 days. Following five months of yeast lees contact the various parcels of Sauvignon Blanc were blended together lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
