BALANCED AND ELEGANT
So good it’s been named as best Sauvignon Blanc at international competitions not once, but twice! Our double Trophy winning Sauvignon Blanc is a Marlborough classic, fresh and expressive with bundles of varietal character. Crisp with passion fruit and grapefruit flavours, it’s destined to be your new favourite Sauv.
The sweet fruit characters on the palate, together with the fresh acidity, create an expressive Sauvignon Blanc that’s beautiful with barbequed fresh seafood.
Marlborough is a fantastic region for realising the full potential of grape varieties. With its mild springs, largely dry summers and consistently cool nights, we get this great extended growing season that means we can leave grapes on the vines until they reach their ideal ripeness. Our vineyards are also rich with minerals adding that unique zing our Sauv is so well known for.
For this wine we selected individual parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from our vineyards in the Awatere Valley and the Wairau Valley. After harvesting, we fermented each parcel individually using specially selected Sauvignon Blanc yeast strains that work to really enhance the varietal character. Over the next four weeks a long, cool fermentation took place, with the parcels then being blended, stabilised, and bottled.
