Citrus and Grapefruit forward Sauvignon Blanc
New Zealand's first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc grown in Marlborough was bottled in the late 70’s. Since then, this sunny, dry, Northeastern tip of the South Island has taken off as a major wine region for the grape in the New World. Now about 60% of New Zealand’s vineyards are planted in Marlborough making up it’s many sub-regions. Two of these regions grow the grapes that are uniquely blended to make Otto’s Constant Dream Sauvignon Blanc.
Marlborough’s Rapaura region is known for gravelly, free-draining soil, which results in pretty, elegant and light wines. While the region of Omaka’s soil have high clay content that gives wine some power. Otto’s Constant Dream is a bend of sustainably farmed grapes from these regions and the result is ripe with grapefruit, pineapple, lemon and balanced acidity. Light, bright and crisp this wine is perfect for any occasion. Sip this for an aperitif or enjoy this food friendly wine with fish or a light pasta dish.
