Food Pairings for Monkey Bay Sav Blanc
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand Grape Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc Alcohol: 12.5% by volume Total Acidity: 7.1 grams/litre RS: .85 grams/litre pH: 3.56 Description: Bearing the image of a frolicking green monkey, Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc is delightfully fresh and lively. Overflowing with ripe, sweet flavours of grapefruit and lemon, the palate is infused with delicate herbal characters. Finishing crisp and refreshing, this wine balances intense fruit qualities and zesty acidity with the fullness and complexity derived from maturation on yeast lees. Vitification: Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc is predominantly sourced from our Marlborough vineyards, including our relatively new development at Rarangi, just south of Monkey Bay, which lies within the larger Cloudy Bay area. Colour: Pale yellow in colour, with green hues and brilliant clarity. Aroma: A delicious bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits, layered with muted cut grass aromas. Palate: Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc is overflowing with ripe, sweet flavours of grapefruit and lemon, infused with delicate herbal characters. The palate balances intense fruit qualities and zesty acidity with the fullness and complexity derived from maturation on yeast lees. This charming, elegant wine finishes crisp and refreshing, with endless varietal character.
