Friday Wine Tasting…Overstone Marlborough!

December 7, 2012

Wine of the week:

Overstone Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc


Tasting Notes:
This Sauvignon Blanc has vibrant aromas of gooseberry, citrus and melon notes with flavors of guava and passion fruit followed through with crisp, vibrant acidity.

Food Pairings:
Pairs well with salads, fish, chicken, seafood or goat cheese.

Vineyard & Winemaking Notes:
Marlborough is located on the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island on the strait between the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea. It is an area ideal for the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Sunshine is abundant with cool nights and a long growing season. Early morning harvest and cool fermentation with a range of yeast types in stainless steel retain the aromatic fruit characters.
