At Ash Ridge we pride ourselves on making wines that represent the Bridge Pa triangle. Our Sauvignon Blanc is no exception. This distinctly Hawkes Bay style is focused on big ripe fruit flavours. The barrel fermentation is a technique

Fruit:

100% Single estate grown, Bridge Pa Triangle, Hawkes Bay.

Winemaking:

This wine is made of 5 different batches – all having differing winemaking on them, some traditional open top punch downs, whereas some of the batches were kept on skins up to eight weeks. This also has components of stems for added aromatics and structure on the palate.

Each batch is aged in barrel separately for 8 months, blended then put back to barrel for another 6 months to homogenise.

Harvested: 27th March – 14th April 2016

Bottled: 16th June 2017

Alcohol: 12.0%

pH: 3.66

Sensory Evaluation:

Colour: Deep vibrant garnet

Aroma: Wonderfully aromatic, classic Hawkes bay style with lifted floral, berry, pepper, and spice.

Palate: Full bodied with fine, firm tannin. Soft boysenberry flavour and lingering toasty oak framed by soft spice.

Food Matches:

This wine pairs perfectly with Lamb, Venison, and game. Soft enough to enjoy without food.

Cellaring:

Drinking well now, but will cellar well for 5-10 years.

Dark and mouthfilling, this wine is savoury and harmonious, with deep, ripe plum and boysenberry flavours, an elegant seam of pepper, fine-grained tannins, and a long, spicy finish.
