The Isabel Estate Sauvignon Blanc is the epitome of New Zealand's Marlborough wine region. Benefiting from the estate’s old vines and the soils on the south-western corner of the estate, the Isabel Sauvignon Blanc drinks beautifully young but also develops intriguing characters with age. The majority of the juice is fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness and purity, with 5% fermented in 500 litre French oak barrels to add complexity and a textural mouthfeel to the wine. A pure tropical fruit nose of passionfruit and gooseberry gives way to nuances of blackcurrant, grapefruit and underlying flinty aromas. The palate is concentrated and enticing, coupled with the classic Isabel “Old Vine” mineral tones, making this wine refreshing and traditional in style. A creamy mid palate and balanced acidity gives the wine weight and length, and makes it a great accompaniment to freshly caught fish or mussels.
