Manawa Sauvignon Blanc 12pk 2019 - on Premise only
Blessed with a glorious, dry summer, 2019 harvest commenced remarkably early on March 1st. Vintage 2019 will be remembered as relatively trouble free, and a long harvest period -after the last few years when all varieties ripened at once, the slow, steady and spread out nature of 2019 was welcomed.
Fruit was harvested at optimum maturity with the intention to maintain fresh and vibrant acidity to balance concentration of the fruit. All in all, we feel very grateful for all that vintage 2019
delivered -exceptional conditions and resulting fruit quality and health.
The fruit was harvested in the early morning and late evening, when the temperature of the grapes were still cool. After this the juice was gently pressed, then allowed to ferment in stainless steel tank at a low temperature, to retain fruit characters. The resulting wine shows depth, complexity and balance.
