Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a focus on freshness and varietal flavour intensity. The palate is extraordinarily balanced with bright seamless acidity, concentration of brambly, grapefruit fl avours and a long supple finish. Each of Wither Hills' 15 vineyard sites strategically sited throughout the Wairau Valley were harvested at optimum flavour ripeness. The fruit from these vineyards was kept separate throughout the winemaking process to ensure integrity of the vineyard and to provide the greatest possible blending combinations

Winery Tasting Notes
Winemaker Tasting Notes The 2009 Wither Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows benchmark characteristics; intense gooseberry, tomato leaf and capsicum characters underpinned by the classically pungent melon, guava and passionfruit aromatics. The palate is extraordinarily balanced with bright seamless acidity, concentration of brambly, mineral lemongrass flavours and a long supple finish. A wine of remarkable intensity.
