Grove Mill Sauvignon Blanc 2023


Value and some!!!

"Gorgeously ripe and instantly appealing, the wine shows passionfruit, crunchy apple, fresh fig and lemon/lime peel aromas, leading to a delectably flavoursome palate offering pristine fruit notes with juicy acidity, making it fabulously drinkable. At its best: now 2026" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2023

"Our Grove Mill Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is bright pale straw in colour with a light green hue. A bouquet of intense and lifted tropical fruits and a very juicy and vibrant palate makes for a punchy and contemporary style of Wairau Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

The fruit for our Grove Mill Sauvignon Blanc was primarily harvested from our lower Wairau vineyards including our flagship vineyard, 17 Valley. Good soil and canopy management, cold nights during ripening, and a warm and dry summerkept all the concentrated flavours in the grapes which you can now taste in the wine.

The grapes were selectively harvested and brought straight into the winery. The fruit was gently crushed and pressed before being settled into tank. A small percentage was run to barrel for wild fermentation, and the rest was racked to stainless steel tanks innoculated with selected yeast strains to promote Sauvignon Blanc specific aromas." Winery
