100% Sauvignon Blanc

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Region: Marlborough

Winemaker: Marcus Wright/Rebecca Wiffen

 Viticulture Notes:

A blend of the Wairau (Southern Valleys) and Awatere Valley (43%), the vines were three and four cane VSP pruned. The grapes were picked on the flavours, trying to balance the nice grassy notes with the more tropical passionfruit flavours

 Winemaker’s Notes:

The grapes were picked when we thought the flavours were at their best, then gently pressed to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The fermentation was done at cool temperatures with specially selected yeast that maximised the aromatics in the juice. After fermentation the tanks were graded and this wine is a selection of the best tanks

Cellaring:

Enjoy while young and fruity – over the next 12-24 months.

Tasting Note

This is a wonderfully aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with flavours ranging from ripe and tropical through to herbaceous and grassy. The palate is bright and fruity with a lovely, juicy concentration and gentle finish. Vegan friendly wine.

Food Pairing

Perfect as a refreshing glass of wine on its own, or enjoy with seafood, salads, vegetarian dishes, Asian-inspired cuisine or as a contrast to soft cheeses
