Auntsfield Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says

Auntsfield doesn’t make sauvignon like everyone else in Marlborough. The point here is expressing the mineral texture of this old site, achieved through all manner of clever winemaking tricks including use of a bit of old oak and months of lees ageing and stirring. The result is released later, will live longer and speaks more about mouthfeel, lemon pith texture and fine, chalky minerality than it does passionfruit flavour. If you thought it was time to jump to 2012 sauvignon, think again.

Fresh and crisp, with complexity from partial barrel fermentation (15%). Citrusy and zingy, with good length.

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Grown and hand-harvested on the south side of the Wairau Valley, on the property where Marlborough's first wines were made in the 1870s, the 2010 vintage was 15 per cent fermented and lees-aged in seasoned French oak barriques. It's a very classy wine, highly scented, with penetrating melon and green-capsicum flavours, a very subtle seasoning of oak adding complexity, a crisp, dry finish - and loads of personality.
