Description

  • Dry style
  • Grapefruit
  • Passionfruit
  • Elegant finish

Pale lemon in colour. Aromas of grapefruit, zesty lemon peel and tropical papaya. An intense and weighty palate showing layers of citrus and passionfruit. A fine thread of oyster shell and minerality lead to a pure and elegant finish. 

Selected from a single vineyard in the Dillons Point area of Marlborough. Close to the ocean, this sub-region experiences long hot days balanced by the effect of cooling sea breezes at night.

The 2021 vintage started with cool spring weather which extended the length of flowering, leading to open bunches. A long and hot growing season led to lower crop levels with increased intensity of expressive tropical characteristics. Ripening steadily throughout the growing period, the fruit was continually monitored until a balance of flavour, acidity and physiological ripeness was reached.

During a cool evening, the vineyard was machine harvested and the grapes quickly transported to the winery where they were destemmed and pressed. After settling, the juice was fermented at cool temperatures and racked off lees quickly to retain the vibrant fruit flavours and freshness of this Sauvignon Blanc.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with pan-fried scallops, soft Goat’s cheese or Marlborough mussels.
