New Zealand has a brand new export that’s now available at the LCBO. We had the pleasure to enjoy just before it hit the shelves here in Canada, and since we enjoyed this 2016 Sauvignon Blanc so much, we thought we had to share it with you.
From one of New Zealand’s most coveted wine collections, Te Awa has released a Nelson 2016 Sauvignon Blanc on May 21, 2017, this week, for your enjoyment.
This Sauvignon Blanc comes from their brand new Left Field collection, which is known for their whimsical approach to exploration, creativity and imagination. We were instantly drawn to their world of the unexpected, the weird and the wonderful, which starts to sum up their first Canadian offering. The artwork for the collection was created by renowned Kiwi artist Aaron Pollack, and channels the birthplace of Te Awa: the windmill. Through the Squid Crab, the Flamingo Recluse and the other whimsical creatures, we are given a hint at where this wine can lead your imagination. Richard Painter, their esteemed winemaker, sums it up best when we says, “From the taste to the label, it is truly an out of left field experience.”
This sweet, smooth sauvignon blanc from Left Field has notes of passionfruit, nectarine, and a subtle hint of lemongrass. It’s light, while colourful, playful, while still hearty and sweet without being sugary.
In short, it may be the perfect addition to our summer wine selection, and, just in time for the warm weather, and yes, patio season.
Fermentation: Stainless steel tank
Varieties: 100% Sauvignon blanc
Price: 18.95 CAD
Now the great offering from Left Field doesn’t stop there. They will also be offering Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Rose at select LCBO locations later this summer.
