This Sauvignon Blanc from the 2020 vintage exhibits bright tropical fruit salad notes of passionfruit, pineapple and guava, with hints of crushed blackcurrant bud and a lick of oyster shell.
The sweet core of fruit in the mid-palate is framed by fresh, mouthwatering acidity and has generous length and persistence of flavour.
This Sauvignon Blanc is best enjoyed while young and vibrant, perfect for long balmy summer afternoons and evenings.
Fallen Angel wines are high-quality wines that are not grown on Waiheke.
In creating this range we are recognising that other regions are more suitable for the growing and making of other varieties i.e. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Otago Pinot Noir.
This range was originally developed for the Stonyridge Vineyard Restaurant but has become so successful the team decided to make it available to the trade and export market. To achieve the style we want, we have created joint venture relationships with some of New Zealand’s top winemakers, and work with them to produce the outstanding wines that we have designed.
The hallmarks of this range are distinctive varietal characteristics and integrity, low acidity, and extremely ripe fruit. These are wines to be loved and enjoyed and yet have the ability to stand up against some of the finest wines in their categories.
