With grapes hand-picked from eight of their own vineyards in Wairau Valley, the classic Marlborough style of Sauvignon Blanc is partially fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 2-3 months in stainless steel tanks then bottled without fining. Handpicked fruit is whole bunch pressed and cold settled before fermentation. Drinks beautifully now or can be cellared for three to five years.
PalateThe wine is juicy and mouth filling with vibrant ripe fruit. A fresh line of balanced acidity supports the soft, round texture.
NoseA lifted and perfumed Sauvignon Blanc with strong citrus characteristics leading into ripe tropical tones. Complimentary flinty and smoky notes linger in the background providing a complex balance to the primary fruit.
