Tasting notes

The 2016 AVETA Sauvignon Blanc offers inviting aromas of citrus, guava, lemongrass, orange blossom and hints of boxwood and tangerine. On the palate, the wine is fresh and bright with citrus flavors and a lingering finish with a touch of bright acidity. The weight, flavorful texture and acidity make this a versatile food wine. Try pairing AVETA with grilled oysters with mignonette sauce, grilled prosciutto-wrapped shrimp or fresh fish ceviche with cilantro.

Producer

STE MICHELLE WINE ESTATES

Vinification and aging

Malolactic fermentaton in stainless steel tank. Ageing 19 months in French oak barrrels (84% new).

Terroir

The rock outcropping that forms the eastern boundary of the estate, the Stags Leap Palisades, sheds debris in the form of volcanic rhyolite and tuff, which is carried to the valley floor where it mingles with the deeper subsoil made up of Bale loam formed from ancient river sediment.
