Eclipse wines are powerful wines of intense flavour and structure and this kit is no exception.
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the original 6 classic ‘Noble Grape’ varieties and is the main grape variety of the classic White Bordeaux wines. In New Zealand however, the wine has gained a reputation by exaggerating some of the classic characteristics of this grape.
Marlborough has the sunniest, driest climate in New Zealand, and the Wairau Valley’s rich soils combine with the cool nights to deliver a classic example.
New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is a Noble Grape staff favourite and this is the first kit that we’ve tried that has captured the true character and essence that New Zealand has become world renowned for.
Very true to style! Astonishingly flavourful white, with gooseberry, herbs, grapefruit, fresh-cut grass, lime-leaf, tropical fruit & a host of other beguiling aromas. Few wines ever achieve the amazing aromatic complexity and zesty fruit of this New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Long, rich flavours with a crisp dry finish.
Great match with all things seafood (oysters, scallops, salmon, crab, etc), roast chicken dishes and olive oil based pasta dishes. Also great with spicy food!Type: White | Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium | Oak Intensity: None
