Drylands really are the top shelf of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The unique soils of Marlborough's golden triangle are home to the Drylands wineworks and illustrious Home Block vineyard, established 1980, one of Marlborough’s oldest sites, where the quality of fruit is nothing less than outstanding, each and every year. Drylands is assembled from parcels picked off the finest small Sauvignon Blanc vineyards, selected on the basis of intensity, structure and balance, each contributes its own exquisite elegance, character and style.
Drylands are a super premium brand of Marlborough wines, made from fruit grown predominantly to the Drylands property and surrounding Rapaura vineyards. The sites are recognized as a salient rendering of the Marlborough style. Small batches of juice are kept separate throughout vinification, each treated to a regimen to suit the vineyard, achieving a range of exciting blend options. The juices are inoculated by yeasts chosen for their ability to enhance aromas, flavours and as mouthfeel. Following fermentation, parcels are matured on lees, further developing palate complexity. Upon completion, batches are assembled into a wine which articulates the inimitable excellence of the Drylands style. Alcohol 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Light yellow hues. An aromatic bouquet of gooseberry, ripe tropical bouquets, pineapples and passionfruit. The palate offers excellent weight of fruit and remarkable complexity, layers of passionfruit and pink grapefruits, melons and fresh herb. Rich and mouthfilling, impressively structured juicy acidity, culminating in a clean, lingering finish. A fantastic aperitif and fine accompaniment to seafood and poultry recipes.
