Description

Fragrant aromatics reminiscent of grapefruit peel, bitter lemon, currant, guava, nettle and sweet herbs. Smoky and stone-like mineral notes add complexity and interest.

This Sauvignon Blanc is blended from sixteen base wines sourced from eleven different sites in the Wairau valley. A range of soil profiles, from stones to clay, as well as different meso-climates and vineyard practices, provide complexity in the finished wine.

Fragrant aromatics reminiscent of grapefruit peel, bitter lemon, currant, guava, nettle and sweet herbs. Smoky and stone-like mineral notes add complexity and interest.

A full and complex spectrum of flavours from herbal notes through to ripe tropical fruit salad, with tangy grapefruit, bitter lemon blackcurrant, nectarine and hints of tomato leaf. Mouthfeel is rounded with good weight, and is enriched by the barrel ferment components, which add creaminess too. Acidity is fresh and juicy but by no means tart, and helps to promote a signature dry, stony mineral finish.

This Sauvignon Blanc takes classic Marlborough flavours and marries them to a fine acid structure and rich texture with a mineral twist. The wine’s liveliness and punch are immediately appealing and will provide rewarding drinking over the next 18-24 months.
