Description

  • Dry style
  • Ripe tropical fruit
  • Fresh citrus & lime
  • Balanced acidity

Classically Marlborough, this 2019 Sauvignon Blanc shows ripe passionfruit, lime and grapefruit notes. The palate is rich and complex with a dense fruit core. Multi layered palate of citrus and tropical fruits make this an excellent wine to enjoy. These flavours and aromas leave a fresh lingering finish on the palate making it a full satisfying wine with balanced acidity.

The 2019 growing season was very warm and caused drought conditions in some parts of Marlborough. As our vineyards have good water security, we were able to avoid any issues arising from water stress. The vintage itself was very enjoyable. The rain stayed away, allowing us to pick the grapes at optimum ripeness. Quality will be very high across all varieties from the 2019 vintage.

The grapes were grown in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, famed for its stony soils and ability to produce punchy, aromatic wines. The vinification techniques are centred on a desire to produce wines with texture and complexity. Grapes were harvested and quickly pressed. Minimal settling occurred before the juice was fermented in stainless steel vats using a combination of cultured and indigenous yeasts. A small portion of the juice was fermented in older oak barrels. Each vineyard block is kept separate during the winemaking process. The resulting wines received six months lees aging before being blended and bottled.
