Wither Hills – Early Light Sauvignon Blanc

MARLBOROUGH

ALC/VOL: 9.5%

Our Early Light range is an exciting addition to the Wither Hills family, offering crisp, vibrant wines at a slightly lower alcohol level for people to really enjoy. Enjoy with pan seared Snapper, roast vegetable salads, and steamed green lip mussels.

Taste Profile:
Showcasing tropical guava and citrus on the nose, with crisp lime and minerality on the palate. A refreshingly light, yet full flavoured sensation at 9.5% ABV.

Winemaking:
Fruit for our Early Light range of wines is harvested early to capture optimum flavour ripeness whilst reducing the levels of naturally occurring sugar. This lower level of sugar means less alcohol is converted resulting in a lighter in alcohol style of wine.

The 2019 vintage was a story of two halves. High rainfall over flowering in November led to lower yields, with the low rainfall and elevated temperatures that followed in January/February resulting in enhanced ripening. The flow-on from this hot, dry weather saw our earliest ever harvesting at Wither Hills where Sauvignon Blanc was one of the standout varieties. Early picking created a wine packed with punchy, vibrant flavours so loved in our Sauvignon Blanc.
