Tasting Notes: Reminds you what made Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc famous! The Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc has tangy grapefruit aromas with a zingy finish and impeccable balance.

Producer Details: Sileni Estates was born from a long-standing interest in wine by Graeme Avery. In late 1997, along with financial director Chris Cowper and winemaker Grant Edmonds, he established Sileni as an export-oriented producer, committed to crafting world-class fine wines. The winery is named after the Sileni who featured in Roman mythology alongside Bacchus, the God of Wine. They celebrated good wine, good food and good company; to us here at Boutinot the holy trinity. The vineyards and winery are based near Hastings, Hawke’s Bay - the oldest wine region in New Zealand - on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.

In The Vineyard: Grown in cooler Hawke's Bay sub regions, on a variety of soil types. Gravels provide structure, length and perfumed aromatics, while the clay soils provide roundness, sweet fruit and savoury characters

In The Winery: This wine is part hand-plunged, and part pumped over during fermentation to aid in colour extraction and provide tannin structure.After a period of maceration on skins, the wine is pressed off and run into oak barrles for maturation.
