The first sauv to be bottled

Our Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is now ready to be bottled! With a winery full of young, vibrant, fresh and expressive wines, it appears to be a great year for the Awatere Valley, with natural balance and mineral acidity the highlights. We are excited about bringing this new wine to market. 

Following harvest in the winery, we are blending and filtering our white wines before bottling, while our reds are sitting for longer in barrels to vary the colour, flavour, tannins and texture. Our Cellar Manager, Morgan Potts, is happy to be sending away the first of our Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc to be bottled at Wineworks this week!
