Tasting Notes

Pale Straw. Intense aromas of grapefruit, crushed lemongrass and thyme mingle with passionfruit and melon highlights. A complex and elegant wine with classic characters of blackcurrant bud and fresh cut thyme. Underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes from the grapes grown in the Blind River sub region of Marlborough combine well with the more tropical notes of passionfruit and melon from the Wairau Valley vineyards. A stylish and pleasingly rich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant aromatics and a fine balance of acidity leading to a lingering finish. Perfect for drinking immediately, this Sauvignon Blanc will be at its best over the next 1 to 2 years. Enjoy as an aperitif or pair with seafood, chicken and summer salads.

Technical Notes

The 2019 growing season was characterised by a volatile wet & cold spring flowering & early summer. The last significant rain for the summer fell on Xmas Day heralding one of the warmest and driest summers on record. The combination of these two factors led to naturally lower yields and very low disease incidence. Fruit was clean, balanced and beautifully ripe producing exceptional character and intensity in the resulting wines. SUSTAINABILITY The fruit from each vineyard was independently monitored and harvested before being carefully pressed to ensure minimal skin contact to prevent juice deterioration. Once settled, the batches were cool fermented in stainless steel tanks using specific cultured yeasts to add complexity while retaining the fresh fruit characteristics from each of the individual vineyards. Shortly after blending the wine was prepared for bottling under a screwcap closure.
