Gladstone Vineyard Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
The cool season has enabled us to deliver a balanced and elegant wine with a good weight and finish. Showing off semi-tropical fruit, stone fruit, lifted citrus, and lime flower aromas combine with the aroma of lightly roasted cashew and a gentle floral perfume for a lovely, complex wine. The weighty and generous palate balances with elegant, subtle acidity for a beautiful lingering finish.

"This is the staple wine in Gladstone Vineyard's portfolio. The estate range is the benchmark for the house style and is a blend from top-performing blocks and clones we grow. Our mandate for this wine is to produce something that is genuinely reflective of the Wairarapa region; perfumed and savoury with fine tannins. The restraint on oak integration is a must to achieve the desired, transparent regional characteristics. There is no hiding behind a curtain of fancy winemaking tricks and new oak - just purity, liveliness, and sophistication. " - Eddie McDougall
WINEMAKING & PRODUCTION:
This hand-harvested Sauvignon Blanc comes from the 1986 estate plantings, which means yields are low and fruit is concentrated. Fruit is cooled overnight in a cool room at 2°C then pressed into tank as whole bunches the next morning and left to settle. 50% is then racked for barrel fermentation with the remaining 50% being fermented in stainless steel. The juice fements for up to 3 weeks in ambient cellar conditions and are then racked and sulphured once primary fermentation is completed. Juice is then returned to tank and barrels, and matured for a further 8 months. The wine is then fined with skimmed milk and isinglass prior to being filtered and then bottled.
