Mayfly, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2021

Mayfly, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2021

Producer Profile

The Mayfly, so symbolic of the first warmth of summer, drift down New Zealand's crystalline streams and rivers providing food for the voracious trout that have made this a mecca for fly-fisherman the world over.

The same pristine environment has proved to be the best place to produce the vibrant and refreshing Mayfly wines. We are sure that this crisp Marlborough wine will have wine drinkers hooked.

Viticulture

All of the fruit comes from the single Kerseley estate vineyard from vines planted between 1991 and 2008. Grown on a VSP trellis system, the vineyards are in the Dillons point area around half a mile from the sea.

Winemaking

Fermentation in stainless tank at low temperature with natural yeasts to ensure the single site is expressed in the wine.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

No tricks here, just a youthful and exquisite Sauvignon Blanc with prominent asparagus, mature peach and exotic fruit notes on the nose. Fresh and deliciously crisp with excellent natural acidity and a long citric and peach aftertaste as well as a rounded body and good structure.

Food Matching

Grilled fish, Asian style seafood, even Thai!
