Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough New Zealand

The time of picking is crucial to Sauvignon Blanc and the closer a winemaker scrutinizes his fruit, the more optimal will be the decision to harvest. Each site is harvested at optimal ripeness and some are picked in several passes. Rich oak ferments contribute subtle mealy characters and added palate weight.

Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from several different Marlborough vineyards within a wide geographical spread, the Waihopai Valley to Chaytors Road in the coastal lower Wairau Valley and over to Awatere Valley. Each vineyard is separately managed to achieve the finest quality of fruit possible. Yields are carefully managed and great care is taken in deciding the time of harvest. Grapes are gently pressed into a mix of fermenters and seasoned French oak barriques. Parcels are inoculated to a combination of cultured aromatic and wild indigenous yeasts. Batches vinified at cooler temperatures retain the naturally vibrant fruit character, barrel ferments contribute wonderful textures to the finished wine.
Light lemon hue. A beautifully lifted nose of lemongrass, passionfruit, lemon sherbet and green herb aromas. Intensity and complexity are the hallmarks, the palate offers great concentration, with crisp acidity providing freshness, whilst emphasising the mineral/ chalky character and length of the wine. Juicy citrus, zingy lime, passionfruit and fresh cut grass flavours all feature.
