Winery Tasting Notes
A pure expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, overflowing with aromas of passionfruit, citrus, lime and gooseberry.
The wine is concentrated and juicy displaying vibrant grapefruit and nettle notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, finishing with a crisp line of acidity.
Enjoy now and until 2013.
Fresh pan fried scallops or fish and grilled seasonal vegetables.
Each vineyard was harvested at optimum flavour ripeness and processed separately to provide the greatest number of blending options. A proportion of the vineyard parcels received skin contact in the winery to enhance the intensity of flavours, before the fruit was gently pressed, cold settled and racked for fermentation. Cool fermentation techniques were used to retain purity of flavour and aromatics. After fermentation the wines remained on yeast lees for several months to build mouthfeel. The wine was then racked and blended, gently fined, filtered and immediately bottled, capturing purity of flavour, freshness and richness.
