2019 Peregrine Sauvignon Blanc
2019 Peregrine Sauvignon Blanc Fresh fennel and feijoa aromatics with a precise dry flinty texture. Stonefruits and herbal notes on the palate. Vibrant aromatics and great purity of flavor combine with a distinctive minerality and fine palate texture. A beautiful wine that reflects our commitment to organic winegrowing on the two sub regions that contribute to our Sauvignon Blanc. Pair this 2019 vintage with seafood and antipasti.
Home to the globe’s most southerly vineyards, which are cultivated below the 45th parallel, Central Otago is a true one-of-a-kind wine growing region, but not only because of its extreme location.
Central Otago is more dependent on one single variety than any other region in New Zealand—and it isn’t Sauvignon blanc. They don’t even make Sauvignon blanc there.
Pinot Noir claims nearly 75% of the region’s vineyards with Pinot Gris coming in a far second place and Riesling behind it. This is also New Zealand’s only wine region with a continental climate, giving it more diurnal and seasonal temperature shifts than any other.
The subregion of Bannockburn has enjoyed the most success historically but the area’s exceptional growth has moved to the promising regions of Cromwell/Bendigo and Alexandra districts. Central Otago is known for its fruity and full-bodied Pinot noir. With the freedom to experiment here, growers and winemakers are easily exhibiting the area’s great potential.
