Description

  • Dry style
  • Tropical fruit
  • Zesty & juicy
  • Fresh herbs

"It's intensely aromatic and instantly appealing on the nose showing grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, nectarine and lime peel aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's lively and flavoursome. It's punchy and vibrant with excellent varietal purity, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020

Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit and a dry finish, this wine will take you straight back to the warmer Summer days. Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit-driven new world style wine will excite the senses without the racy overload. A crisp refreshing wine, that shows the Ture terroir characters of the soils and area it comes from.

The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is an early release vineyard off the winemakers Millstone block, one of the earlier planted blocks in Marlborough its in the heart of Rapaura. Wines from this area are grown in very alluvial soils that produce wines with brilliant acidity and purity. CV-19 lockdown was introduced right at the start of harvest, so the team had to adapt to the newest ways.

It has been a super harvest, maybe one of the better ones Marlborough has seen for the last 20 years. The grapes are machine harvested and immediately pressed in the cool of the night. The juice is maintained at cool temperatures to ensure the aromatics are not lost.Cleared juice is then fermented to dryness at cool temperatures with specifically selected yeasts. We then selected the pick of the tanks for blending into a wonderful fresh expression for bottling.
