Third Generation Sauvignon Blanc
Brilliant water white with green highlights. A zesty, fruit driven style that showcases the refreshing, clean characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh aromas of pineapple, mango and lime are followed by a lively palate of citrus and fresh lime with a crisp dry finish.
Third Generation Sauvignon Blanc Winemaking
The Third Generation Sauvignon Blanc from Nugan Estate is part of the Third Generation range of wines. This range is gets its namesake after Matthew Nugan’s generation of the Nugan family. This is because they are the third generation of the Nugan family since Alfredo and Annelise emigrated to Australia in 1940. This range of wines is all about being varietally correct to the fruit, with a fruit forward nose. The wines in this range are drinking well at the moment and are suited to any occasion with friends.
In order to retain the delicate natural aromas and flavours the fruit, we crush, chill and press it. Straight after this occurs, we place the wine into cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

WINE & FOOD MATCH
This fresh white wine is the perfect partner to many styles of modern Australian food as well as being a fantastic pre-dinner drink.
We grow the grapes for the Third Generation Chardonnay in the Riverina and we call this wine “sunshine in a glass”.
This wine has beautiful fruit, tropical flavours and pineapple. When we harvest this we cool the parcels and we clarify the juice before fermentation. You can smell typical chardonnay aromas and then we age this in French oak predominantly it is fantastic, crisp and zesty on the palate.
The key to all these wines is just a little bit of oak so you can taste the varieties, and nice and balance, crisp, just beautiful. Enjoy this with poultry or fish.
