Recommended Reviews The WineKnitter Vol. 26 No. 03 Wine

Yealands Estate Single Block S1 Sauvignon Blanc 2020


The vineyard for this 100% Sauvignon Blanc is located in Awatere Valley in the Marlborough Appellation of New Zealand. It is the southernmost, coolest, and driest of Marlborough’s growing regions. Yealands is one of only a handful of wineries worldwide to be certified as carbon neutral and the first-ever to be certified from inception. 

Nose & Palate: Lovely aromas of ripe stone fruit, citrus, and tropical notes. The palate offers exotic fruit, hints of lime, pineapple, good acidity, and flinty minerality.
Alcohol: 13.5%
SRP: $30
Pairing: Enjoy as an aperitif or serve with shellfish, light pasta dishes, grilled chicken, or halibut.
