Bishop's Leap Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

A light bodied, mouth-watering wine redolent of
passionfruit complemented by herbaceous flavours with
a zesty and refreshing finish.


Producer Note
Bishop’s Leap has been a firm favourite for our customers for many years. Made by
Megan Simmons, this classic New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc punches
above its weight in both style and price.


Vintage
Winter was not a particularly cold one, however some colder frosts were recorded
during May and June; fortunately warming sunshine during the day alleviated
pressure. Some showery weather was experienced in December, but after January
the rain departed and settled weather arrived, bringing with it very warm
temperatures and excellent conditions for harvest.


Vineyard
The grapes are carefully selected from several vineyards in Marlborough.
Marlborough is a dry, sunny viticultural region, situated at the north eastern tip of the
South Island, New Zealand. Consisting of two parallel valleys, the Wairau and the
Awatere, it stretches along the Pacific Coast. The vines grow in mixed alluvial soils,
which are geologically young and have been distributed along the valley's floors by
the Wairau and Awatere rivers. Ideal for viticulture, these alluvial soils have good
drainage and low fertility, so the vine is forced to deepen its roots for hydration and
nutrients, resulting in berries which are concentrated in flavour.


Winemaking
The grapes were pressed with minimal skin contact, to maintain the pure fruit
flavours. The must was then cool fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel to
retain its freshness and zesty character.


Tasting Note
A full and crisp wine with intense aromas and flavours of passion fruit, underlying
gooseberry and herbal tones. Mouth-watering acidity is balanced by a full flavoured
palate that leads to a long lingering finish.
