Description

  • Dry style
  • Fresh fig
  • Basil & lemon
  • Richly textured

"This is a stylish rendition with nectarine, fresh fig, sweet basil and lemon zest aromas with a hint of oatmeal complexity. The wonderfully weighted palate delivers excellent concentration and richly textured mouthfeel, brilliantly structured by bright acidity, finishing long and engaging. At its best: now to 2028" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2021

"BDX 316 & 317 are two Bordeaux clones with a reputation for producing wines that are less grassy and show more tropical fruit character. It certainly shows more ripeness than the average Marlborough sauvignon, with a backbone of attractively ripe acidity. A delicious wine" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Oct 2021

"An enticing, intriguing, complex bouquet shows a wide array of characters including green rockmelon, citrus blossom and savoury, bacon rind and buttered popcorn notes. A suave, dry, mineral, stone-sucking food-style with great mid-palate concentration, flinty, lemony acidity and an elegant, piquant finish. Sophisticated, deliciously moreish wine" The Wine Rater, Dec 2021

Produced from Sauvignon Blanc clones 316 & 317 that bear the “BDX” prefix to denote their Bordeaux origins. Clone 316 typically yields smaller crops of loose clusters with medium berries, whilst clone 317 yield larger berries with thicker skins. When combined into one they give an edge to Sauvignon Blanc flavours, with less cut grass, and more mouth-coating texture.

One to push boundaries they decided to make a wine only from the French clones and called it exactly what it is...

Much of Marlborough success has been driven by a single Sauvignon Blanc clone called MS or Mass Selection. However, since the 1990s new clones (316 & 317) were brought in from Bordeaux to help provide more palate weight to the varietal intensity that MS brings to the table, so winemakers now have a choice to blend these clones all together or stick to what they know works.
