Walnut Block, 'The Collectibles', Sauvignon Blanc, 2019, Marlborough, New Zealand


This is a super-expressive high quality Sauvignon. It's that typical full on fresh exotic herbaceous style of New Zealand, but due to time spent maturing on the lees (the fermentation sediment), it has an element of richness, texture, and beautiful creaminess you don't find in cheaper Kiwi Sauvignon's. It's dry, focused, elegant, and punchy!

Founded in 2005, Walnut Block Wines is the vision of two brothers – Clyde and Nigel Sowman. In combining their experience in viticulture and the wine industry with their passion for and appreciation of fine wine, they have created a boutique winery offering a unique range of superbly crafted organic Marlborough wines. The estate takes its name from Marlborough’s oldest walnut tree that towers majestically above the Sauvignon Blanc vines, providing a special historical focal point for the vineyard.
