Overview

This wine is a refined example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It has the subtle influences of cut grass and nettle on the nose unfolding to display hints of passionfruit and tropical notes on the palate. Subtle use of seasoned French oak casks on a portion of the blend has added further weight and complexity. The acidity is crisp and well balanced supporting a long refreshing finish.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

This wine is a refined example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It has the subtle influences of cut grass and nettle on the nose unfolding to display hints of passionfruit and tropical notes on the palate. Subtle use of seasoned French oak casks on a portion of the blend has added further weight and complexity. The acidity is crisp and well balanced supporting a long refreshing finish.

Vineyard

This premium Sauvignon Blanc is a single-vineyard wine sourced from our own sustainably managed vineyard at “Cravens Road” in Marlborough’s famous Wairau Valley. The grapes were picked at a range of ripeness levels for optimum flavour and complexity.

We separated the main block into a number of zones and varied the amount of leaf plucking in each. This directly affects the fruit’s flavour and composition, with more exposure to the Marlborough sun leading to riper, more tropical flavours.

Winemaking Note

The grapes were pressed very gently over a long period of time to extract the free run juice; this was kept separate from the hard pressed juice. The hard press juice was treated with casein to remove any harsh flavour and then both portions went through a cool fermentation with specially selected yeast that allow the natural fruit flavour of this variety to shine. After fermentation a portion of the pressings were blended back with the free run to assist with structure and complexity in the resulting wine.
