Johnson Estate Winery Seyval Blanc 2009
Johnson Estate is the family owned vineyards of nearly 400 acres of vineyards sited in the lower Waihopai Valley on the terraces of the Omaka River. Bryan and Jan Johnson established the first of their 380 acres of estate vineyards in 1993. Pioneers in what was then a Marlborough sub region, the Lower Waihopai development continued with fruit being grown and sold to other wine companies. This is a classic fruit-driven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with great complexity from ageing on the Lees. Intense passion fruit and grapefruit aromas are expressed on the nose with superb purity of flavour and vibrant acidity.
