Sliding Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2018
When Sliding Hill was pushed out of the sea, rock was crushed like grapes in a press. Wind and water then sprinkled loose soil, rich in minerals over our land. It created a prefect bed for raising Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. At Sliding Hill in Marlborough New Zealand, with a little help from nature, we have created wine whose depth, complexity and character and literally off the Richter scale.
Nose: The nose is elegant and slender with a finely concentrated core of cut-grass, nettles, fresh herbs and suggestions of passionfruit and gooseberries, green stonefruits and mouthwatering minerals.
Palate: Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and gently luscious, sweet fruit flavours of green stonefruits with cut-grass and nettles. Nuances of passionfruit and gooseberries with fresh herbs unfold on a lively and refreshing palate, and the mouthfeel is thirst-quenching.
Finish: This has weight and depth, and the wine flows along a light-textured line with fresh acidity, leading to a moderately long finish.
Food Pairing: Serve with salads and vegetables.
