Sileni, Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Sauvignon Blanc 95%, Semillon 5%
The Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc has really pungent, tangy grapefruit aromas with a zingy finish and impeccable balance.
Grown on a vareity of soil types - gravels which provide tropical flavours, clay loams produce citrus notes, and deep silty soils lift the aromatic quality. Fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the natural fruit characters. A portion of Semillon has been used in the final blend for additional complexity and palate weight.
Sileni Estates was born from a long-standing interest in wine by Graeme Avery. In late 1997, along with financial director Chris Cowper and winemaker Grant Edmonds, he established Sileni as an export-oriented producer, committed to crafting world-class fine wines. The winery is named after the Sileni who featured in Roman mythology alongside Bacchus, the God of Wine. They celebrated good wine, good food and good company; to us here at Boutinot the holy trinity. The vineyards and winery are based near Hastings, Hawkes Bay - the oldest wine region in New Zealand - on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand. The wines are precise and fruit-driven and as well as Pinot and Syrah the range includes a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and a sparkling Sauvignon Blanc.
