Description

  • Dry style
  • Tropical guava
  • Melon & citrus
  • Lingering acidity

A pale straw colour in the glass, with notes of fresh snow pea, nettles and tropical guava. The front palate is peppered with notes of melon and citrus, while the crisp grapefruit-like acidity lingers and adds texture.

The fruit is sourced across the expanse of the Marlborough winegrowing region. This includes the company Woolshed vineyard, in the upper Wairau Valley; along with long established growers in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys. The Marlborough vineyards are on moderately fertile glacial soils. This includes a mix of sandy loam over very deep gravels; fertile loams and clays.

All round it was a great growing season, with warm temperatures ensuring perfect conditions for flowering and fruit set. The settled weather continued as the fruit ripened, with above average temperatures ensuring the development of juicy acidity and concentrated fruit flavours. At the time of picking, the fruit was in optimal condition — healthy, with great flavour and integrity.

The most important thing in making vibrant Sauvignon Blanc is to avoid oxidation, preserving aromas and freshness. This is done every step of the way; from harvesting to putting the wine into the bottle. Winemakers keep every vineyard batch separate throughout the winemaking process until blending. The final process is fining and filtering, before the wine is then bottled.

Food Pairing: Fresh crumbed fish with a crisp green salad and tangy vinaigrette.
