Waterford Estate, Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2019

A strict selection of Elgin’s best quality vineyards.

Very focused, showing fresh granadilla and green apple fruit, with underlying chalk and slate.

The palate is finely textured with crisp fruit, fresh natural acidity, and a deceptively long finish of flavours.

Description

Winemaker’s notes

Six different blocks of Sauvignon Blanc are used to create various batches of wine to select from for the blend.

This is a very focused style of Sauvignon Blanc showing fresh granadilla and green apple fruit, with underlying chalk and slate notes confirming the Elgin origin of the grapes. The palate is finely textured with crisp fruit, fresh natural acidity, and a deceptively long finish of flavours.

  1. Tim Atkin | 90pts

    “Waterford’s enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc comes from a site close to Iona in Elgin. Stainless steel fermented and aged on its lees for six months, it’s pale and scented, with subtle reduction, lemongrass and pink grapefruit flavours and a tangy finish. 2020-22”
