Description

A brilliant pale green in the glass, this pure and bright Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has a vibrant fruit driven nose bursting with passionfruit, grapefruit, melon and gooseberry. On the palate luscious fruit flavours of citrus, ripe tropical fruits, and lifted herbaceous notes are finely balanced with zesty acidity, an underlying minerality, and just a hint of residual sweetness. Juicy, crisp and fresh this wine leads to a long and dry, persistent finish.

Vinification

All machine harvested, the grapes for our Kono Sauvignon Blanc are fully crushed and destemmed once at the winery to help release the berries’ intense flavours. The grapes are then pressed in modern membrane presses, with both the free-run and harder pressings combined in stainless steel tanks where they are chilled and settled until crystal clear. The clear juice is then racked and warmed before being inoculated with selected yeast cultures. Regular controlled ferments are managed through temperature manipulation with all batches being taken through to dryness. Blending occurs in early June, after which the resulting wine is stabilised and filtering without the need for fining. Bottling takes place in early July to capture freshness and vitality.
