Black Cottage Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Vibrant, lively, tropical-fruited Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with great freshness and sophistication. A step-up from the norm.
This delightful Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a complex nose with nuances of melon and elderflower. The zesty palate is packed full of cucumber and lime flavours with a lick of salt. Crisp acidity and good structure bring this wine to a lively finish.
As a family run winery, sustainability is at the core of the Black Cottage ethos – they focus on sustainable, small-batch winemaking and are part of the Sustainable Winegrowers New Zealand programme.
David Clouston – founder of the Black Cottage Winery – worked for a number of years at wineries in the USA, France, Spain and Chile before returning to his native Marlborough. He now lives in a wooden cottage in the Wairau Valley that is painted black, after which the winery is named. At the end of 2019 Black Cottage implemented lightweight bottles, designed to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation and from 2020 vintage, most wines are vegan friendly.
The Sauvignon Blanc for this wine is sourced from Wairau and Awatere valleys giving a sophisticated, elegant style with mineral notes, fresh acidity and tropical fruit.
