ABOUT THE WINE


Sileni Estates is a family-owned winery located in the Hawke's Bay region of New Zealand. The winery was founded in 1997 by Graeme Avery, who named the winery after the Sileni, mythical creatures from Greek mythology who were known for their love of wine. Parcels of fruit from Marlborough’s Southern and Waihopai Valley were carefully hand selected prior to harvest crafting a sophisticated, succulently textured and complex wine. Partially wild fermented in tank and barrel aged for five months in old French oak barriques, the tank and barrel portions then went through battonage taking Marlborough’s distinctive flavour and character to the next level. This has allowed the wine to have longer time to integrate and come into harmony before release making this Sileni’s best expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.


TASTING NOTE:


Ripe intense aromatics of grapefruit and lime combined with a hint of white peach. This flows to a rich, mouth filling palate that has a beautiful acid freshness leading to a long textural finish.


FOOD PAIRING:


Delicious with lobster, creamy risotto or roast chicken with all the trimmings.
