2020 The Falcon Sauvignon Blanc 2021
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.
Dillons Point, Marlborough
The majority of fruit is harvested from the mature vines of our Talon block located in the famously fertile area of Dillon’s Point known to produce outstanding Sauvignon Blanc.
Pressed immediately following harvest to minimise skin contact and retain freshness, then cool fermented to maintain rich aromatics.
Lifted green apple blossom with fresh nettle and layered tropical notes.
A delicately textured wine with bright tropical flavours showing fullness of palate through to the finish.
Enjoy now and over the next 3 years. If it makes it past the time it takes to chill we’d be impressed.
Vegan and vegetarian friendly.
6 x 750mL bottles, screw cap closure.
