An absolute Kiwi legend.
Our version of the classic dry aromatic style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The citrus core of flavours are juicy and intense with deliciously refreshing saline acidity. The wine calls for simple fresh seafood but can also be enjoyed as a pre-dinner aperitif with or without social distancing. One of the best vintages the region has experienced in years.
Grapes are hand-picked from eight of our own vineyards within the Wairau Valley. Cropped at an average of 10 tonnes/hectare. The fruit is whole bunch pressed, cold settled before fermentation and 4 months aging in stainless steel tanks. A portion of this wine is fermented using indigenous yeast. Bottled without fining.

"Crisp, dry and concentrated sauvignon blanc with nectarine, guava, salty-mineral, capsicum and lemongrass flavours. A serious sauvignon with intensity, length and a backbone of peppery phenolics. 20 SEP 2021" Drink 2021 - 2025 93/100 Bob Campbell MW
