To experience the taste, try to imagine a different time and place. Remember being a kid in the summer holidays and running around outside all day, riding bikes and mum saying “be home by dinner”.
2021 The Falcon Lighter – Sauvignon Blanc 2022
Let’s drop the bikes here and jump this fence. On the other side is an apple orchard filled with vivid green Granny Smiths. Just at that moment, a cloud comes over, and its tiny raindrops become a downpour instantly. But rather than run for cover we dance, spin and giggle as it cools us from the summer sun. We stick out our tongues and let the raindrops hit the inside of our mouths. The rain tastes like fresh lemon zest and crisp Granny Smiths as it bounces off their skins. As soon as the rain has started, it feels like it’s over again. The vibrant taste lingers in your mouth. Let’s get home; it’s nearly dinner time.
The fruit was sourced from selected vineyard sites in Marlborough’s world renowned Awatere and Wairau Valleys.
The grapes were harvested earlier than our standard Falcon Sauvignon Blanc, before the sugar levels became too high. This allowed the production of a wine lower in alcohol but rich in flavour. The grapes were machine harvested at cool temperatures and processed immediately to minimise skin contact.
Refreshing aromas of blackcurrant, crisp green capsicum and apple blossom.
A fruit driven palate brimming with refreshing flavours of ripe green capsicum, blackcurrant and nettle. This wine may be lighter in alcohol, but this has not hindered its flavour intensity or generosity.
Enjoy now and over the next 3 years.
