BASCAND ESTATE SAUVIGNON BLANC


CURRENT VINTAGE

Bascand 2014 Estate Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

Tasting Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc is bright and fresh with hints of tropical fruit, citrus and nettle. The palate is lively and crisp, with good depth and length on the finish. Serve this classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with fresh seafood or a summer salad.

Wine Making: Traditional techniques of vinification were used to make this wine. The juice was cold settled and fined lightly before racking. The juice was fermented at 14-16 degrees Celsius with a selected Sauvignon Blanc yeast strain which aids the development of aromatics and full bodied characters. Post fermentation, the wine was left for an extended period on the lees and mixed to add complexity to the wine.

Technical Notes: pH 3.33 TA 6.5g/L  Alc 13.0 %  RS 2.18g/L 

Food Match: Fresh crayfish and rocket salad on a sunny day

Cellar Notes: Drink now - 2015

Review: Estate-grown at Rapaura, in the Wairau Valley, the 2013 (4*) is full-bodied and sweet-fruited, with strong, ripe tropical-fruit flavours and a dry, smooth finish. The 2014 vintage (3*) is dry (2.7 grams/litre of residual sugar) and weighty, with ripe-fruit flavours and a slightly creamy, rounded finish.
