Description of Tokomaru Sauvignon Blanc
Tokomaru Sauvignon Blanc (Sauvignon Blanc)
- View: This white wine imitates the colour of green gooseberries.
- Nose: This wine smells of fresh grapes and gooseberries. A floral finish compliments the fresh and crisp scent, making its aroma light and fruity.
- Mouth: On the palate, this wine takes on the traditional flavours of Sauvignon Blanc grapes, as well as that of citrus fruits, gooseberries, and earthy grass notes. Experienced drinkers can also notice herbaceous notes, influenced, in part, by both the Sauvignon Blanc grapes and the way it is aged in stainless steel tanks.
VINEYARD: The grapes used in this wine are grown in Marlborough, New Zealand. Here, the climate gives generous growing conditions because of its hot summer days and cooler nights. Year-round, the climate is relatively warm.
GRAPES: Sauvignon Blanc
AGEING: This wine is aged in stainless steel tanks. This helps to add a unique flavour that sets this wine apart from barrel-aged white wines, which often take on spices related to the wood used.
PREPARATION: Once the grapes are picked, they are destemmed and macerated. The grapes are then allowed to ferment in stainless steel tanks.
PAIRING: This wine pairs best with seafood, including shellfish. It also pairs well with cream-based pasta sauces.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 7°C
