Our 2021 Starborough Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is generous, balanced and bright. Aromas of lime zest, ripe peach and white florals unveil with every swirl. Crisp and smooth on the palate, appealing notes of tropical passionfruit, guava and kiwi blend with subtle suggestions of fresh-cut green herbs and lemongrass. The long finish is marked by palate-refreshing hints of citrusy grapefruit and Meyer lemon. Enjoy alongside creamy goat cheese, prosciutto-wrapped melon or grilled chicken. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes</b><br> A cool start to vintage 2021 was followed by Marlborough’s classic long, warm, sun-drenched days and cool nights. These ideal conditions allowed for ideal flavor development coupled with the region’s signature crisp structure. Harvest was early, with clean, bright, flavorful fruit coming into the cellar. <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes</b><br> Sauvignon Blanc grapes were de-stemmed and lightly membrane pressed, not crushed, to avoid extracting bitter notes from the skins and seeds. The juice was fermented in upright stainless-steel tanks at low temperatures for 21 days to preserve the bright fruit characteristics, then left on light lees during maturation. The wine was then filtered prior to bottling.
