The 2013 Vintage in NZ was one of the best for over 20 years and the new 2013 Beachwood reflects the quality of the Vintage, slightly sweeter than 2012 but still drier than most. A must for lovers of NZ SB.
- An easy drinking Sav Blanc - be tempted
- New Vintage 2013
- Beachwood 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough NZ- 12 x 750ml Bottles
- Winemaker Notes:
- Slighty sweeter and fuller than last years vintage.
- Region: Marlborough New Zealand
Beachwood’s ridge vineyard produces a finely balanced Sauvignon Blanc that is fresh and easy to drink. With the Indian summer we had, the fruit was very flavorsome. With gentle handling and long slow and cool ferments has produced a lively aromatic wine
What a difference a year makes when it comes to vintage 2013. Whereas the previous year saw yields drop dramatically, in some cases by 35%, this year was the opposite.
Marlborough did not experience the severe drought conditions felt throughout much of New Zealand. Instead it basked in long, sunny days, with sunshine hours well up on the previous year.
At the beginning of the season, September and October, the temperatures throughout the region were cool. Enough to delay bud break when compared with many of the previous years. A number of frosts in small pockets of the region caused some variability when it came to bud break, but on the whole the region was looking forward hoping for a better flowering than in 2012.Those wishes were granted when in late November, the sun came out, the easterlies dropped away and temperatures began to rise.Colour
