Sherwood Sauvignon Blanc 2022
The Sherwood range is the original brand of Sherwood Estate Wines. The wine that shares the family name, this is the brand we have become known and respected for over the past 30 years. We feel this brand is most representative of the company, our philosophies and our vision.
A fresh and zesty Sauvignon Blanc, bursting with juicy ripe flavours of gooseberry, guava and lime. The mouthwatering finish leaves you wanting more. Pairs well with herb crusted white fish, goat’s cheese salad or fresh oysters.
Grown on various Waipara Valley soils including the valley floor riverbed shingles as well heavier hillside clay and lime soils, only the most premium fruit was selected for this wine. Following harvest the fruit was gently pressed, allowed to settle and cool ferment for four weeks. Three months of lees contact has imparted a depth of fruit flavour. The parcels of wine were then blended before being lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling. The finished wine is delicate displaying fine fruit flavours and bright acidity.
