Ant Moore, Signature Series Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2021
Legendary Marlborough winemaker Ant Moore moved to New Zealand in 2002 and quickly became part of the fabric of the region (despite being Australian born!).
Turning bare blocks into thriving vineyards, building up a winery and creating many successful wine brands are just some of his many ventures. Based in and around Marlborough, in the sub-regions of Awatere, Waihopai and Wairau Valleys, these individual micro-climates and terroirs provide a unique personality to Ant's wines
The Ant Moore Signature Sauvignon is among their ultra premium range of wines, produced from small parcels of fruit selected by Ant Moore himself. A well rounded Sauvignon Blanc, displaying intense lemon flavours with hints of lime. While the nose is subtle, this wine has a great richness, palate length and weight that provides huge flavour intensity on the finish. Tropical floral influence with some warm cut grass notes showing subtle complexity and spice. Full bodied with lovely palate weight and a touch of fruit sweetness, balanced by a slight structural edge with acidity providing a backbone on which the fruit can hang. Finishes with a persistent intensity.
