Crowded House Sauvignon Blanc 2019 / 2020

NZW0005

Vintage

經歷2017年和2018年的潮濕天氣及以致的緊急採收,感恩2019年有一個乾燥的夏季和友好的天氣,令採收期較長。
2018年11月尾的開花期間,涼爽的10天導致串束小於平均水平,然後在2019年夏季創紀錄的乾燥,意味著果實大小也保持較細粒。這兩個因素共同確保了採收的葡萄濃郁而強壯,具有成熟、溫和的酸度,偏向柑橘、核果和熱帶風味的口味及少量草本味。

What a pleasure (and relief!) to have a dry Summer and weather friendly, spread-out harvest window following the wet spells and urgency of both 2017 and 2018.
A cool 10 days at flowering in late November 2018 resulted in smaller than average bunches and then a record dry over Summer meant that berry size also remained small. These 2 factors combined to ensure fruit at harvest was concentrated and powerful, with ripe, gentle acidity and flavours favouring citrus, stonefruit and tropical notes with less herbaceous character.

Country of Origin:
New Zealand

Region:
Waihopai Valley, Marlborough

Type:
White/Blanc (Still)

Grape Varieties:
Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaking:
“If ever there was a year to let the fruit shine, this was the year.”
Winemaking was therefore very simple with stainless steel tank fermentation used throughout.

Tasting Note:
True to the Crowded House style, the 2019 wine displays grapefruit and citrus notes with overlaying tropical and stonefruit flavours and a gentle herbaceous undercurrent. The palate is quintessentially Marlborough and captures the concentration of the vintage – strikingly vibrant with a full, rich mouthfeel and elegant, integrated acidity ensuring the flavours carry on and on.

Food Pairing:
Perfect as an aperitif in its youth, the wine will match with fresh seafood, aromatic dishes such as herb and lemon roasted chicken, grilled vegetables and salads.
