This pure and bright Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a vibrant fruit-driven nose bursting with citrus fruits and herbaceous characters. On the palate luscious flavours of lemon zest and guava combine with notes of currant leaf and fresh bell pepper. Finely balanced with zesty acidity, an underlying minerality, and just a hint of residual sweetness this crisp and fresh wine leads to a perfectly long, dry, and persistent finish.
Machine harvested grapes are transported to our winery located in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley. Once at the winery the grapes are pressed in modern membrane presses, with both the free-run and harder pressings combined in stainless steel tanks then chilled and settled until clear. The juice is then racked and warmed before being inoculated with selected yeast cultures. The ferments are controlled through temperature manipulation and stopped with just a very small amount of residual sweetness. Blending occurs in early June, after which the resulting wine is stabilised and filtered without the need for fining, ready for bottling in early July.
