Voss Sauvignon Blanc Wines Domestic Sauvignon Blanc Fume Blanc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc displays classic varietal aromas, flavor and texture. Aromas of lemon peel, grapefruit and pineapple combine with a hint of spice and mineral, leading to a delightful combination of intense and exotic fruit flavors across the palate. The wine shows a lovely fullness in the palate from the skin contact before pressing and the lingering finish is bright and crisp. The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc is a great expression of intense flavors and aromas. The skin contact in the press and fermenting 5 separate lots using a combination of yeasts provides the opportunity to make a wine of great varietal character.

Voss Estate Vineyard is a family owned producer in the wine village of Martinborough - just one hour's drive from Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. Established in 1986 by Pinot noir enthusiasts Annette & Gary Voss, their highly focused approach remains hands-on, from managing the vineyards through to making and marketing the wines. In true family style, Gary’s family helped to plant the vineyard in 1988. Gary & Annette have since planted another vineyard entirely in Pinot noir to help meet the demand for Martinborough Pinot. Gary & Annette's wine producing philosophy has been to establish the brand name, “Voss Estate”, at the premium high quality end of the local and global wine market. They have been making award winning wines full of character since 1991. Gary studied wine making at Charles Sturt University in Australia and worked four vintages in New Zealand before producing wine from Voss Estate. Prior to this he spent a year working for a prestigious wine distributor to gain experience in wine sales and marketing. He also oversees the vineyards. Annette now manages sales and marketing and in her spare time tends the vineyard. Her background includes fisheries research (where she met Gary) and human resources. Read less
