Varietal Sauvignon Blanc

Description

This wine was 100% machine harvested using new Pellenc fruit sorters. The grapes were crushed to bag presses leading to greater aromatic fruit expression. The freerun juice was then fermented slowly at cool temperatures to retain the very distinctive regional and varietal characters Marlborough has become famous for.

20% of the ferments occurred in French Oak cuve and 2% was fermented in New French Oak puncheon barrels. All components were left on full fermentation solids until blending occurred, encouraging not only some lees complexity in the final blend, but further enhancing the texture of the wine.

Sommelier Review

“The 2013 growing season was one of the best we have experienced in the last decade. Each parcel of fruit was picked at its flavour peak and has allowed us to craft a complex and textural Sauvignon Blanc that exhibits intense passionfruit, white peach and guava characters.”
