Squealing Pig Sauvignon Blanc

Details

Squealing Pig vineyard is located near the mouth of the Awatere River, the climate is distinctly maritime. The soils consist mainly of loose river gravels which help produce wines with a distinct minerality. The grapes were machine harvested, with the juice being separated from the skins on arrival at the winery through a drainer. The skins were then pressed and the resulting juice re-blended with the free run juice. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel tanks with various selected yeast strains to enhance the pungent natural aroma. After fermentation the wines were racked off gross lees and allowed to sit on light lees prior to blending and bottling. A fresh and vibrant wine; enjoy now to get the best out of this wine whilst in its youth. This Squealing Pig Sauvignon Blanc will develop more mature characteristics if cellared correctly through to 2018. Pale straw with a subtle green hue. The nose has a combination of gooseberry and fresh garden herbs, pungent nettle and passionfruit aroma, underpinned with steely minerality. The palate is clean and linear, with long, chalky acidity.
