FINAL EVER STOCKS | THE QUAFFER SAUV BLANC DEAL OF THE YEAR.
Kumeu River ranks in any discussion of New Zealand's finest wine producers and when we call them 'iconic', that's a fact - not an opinion. The winery, led by Micheal Brajkovich MW, have decided to cull Village Sauvignon Blanc from their portfolio and we have been given a radical price to clear all remaining stocks. We jumped at this incredible opportunity. You should too.
This vibrant, attractive release has long been the darling of the Auckland cafe and restaurant scene and the 2018 is in banging form with lightly textural mouthfeel, loads of tangy tropical fruits and that refreshing lick of crisp acidity on the finish that Sauvignon disciples adore. It is in perfect condition and we expect that fine form to last over the coming 24 months.
If you like the idea of having one of the most prestigious brands in the New Zealand wine market as your everyday drinker, the rules of engagement are simple:
1. Buy every case you can and then do the right thing.
2. Cut everyone you know in on the action.
The winery writes "This wine was made from grapes grown in an elevated north facing vineyard in Hawkes Bay. Originally planted by Pascal Jolivet of Sancerre and Trinity Hill, the vineyard was prized by Jolivet for its limestone soils. The limestone soils of this site gives this wine its distinctive flinty character along with the typically aromatic Sauvignon Blanc we expect to see from New Zealand. The wine was fermented with wild yeast in our Kumeu cellars and displays all the lovely crisp fruit and delicious characters we expect to see from Sauvignon Blanc."
