Description

The different parcels of Sauvignon Blanc have been combined to make a wine that is brimming with pure fruit flavours. The nose is lifted and fresh with notes of passion fruit, blackcurrant and fresh herbs. The sweet fruit characters and crisp acidity, combine to create a palate that is fresh with a zesty mineral finish.

Along the length of our North and South Islands, the cool clear waters of the Pacific Ocean carve deep natural coves into the landscape. Intriguing for its unrivalled tranquillity, this spectacular eastern coastline of New Zealand is also renowned for its exceptional wines. In these beautiful, but harsh, conditions vines struggle for survival, producing low yields of high quality fruit with concentrated flavours.

The 2019 growing season in Marlborough was a hot and dry one. Winemakers received small amounts of rain towards the end of December, but then nothing further until late February. These rain events had very little impact on soil moisture levels, but helped to replenish our rivers, setting up nicely to see through to harvest. Vintage started in mid-March and it provided incredibly stable weather. This meant blocks could be picked at their optimal ripeness.

Individual parcels of Sauvignon Blanc were selected from Awatere Valley vineyards, where they were harvested separately at perfect ripeness. At the winery, the fruit was destemmed, gently pressed and settled, after which the clear juice was inoculated with carefully selected yeast. A long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks enhanced the fruit flavours this Sauvignon Blanc in known for. The wine was then blended, stabilised and filtered in preparation for bottling.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with fresh seafood.

I didn't think it had a whole lot of flavor for a start but I do like it and certainly can't complain about the price. Thanks
