100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced from a single vineyard in the Dillons Point sub region located on the coastal fringe of the Wairau Valley.
The grapes were harvested by machine in the cool of the night to ensure no harsh phenolics were extracted and acidity preserved. Fruit was pressed off quickly to avoid skin contact and drained straight to one small tank. The juice was settled naturally and fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures. With minimal intervention throughout, the wine was bottled on 26th June 2018.
This is a classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, offering complexity of texture and a mineral drive that summons river stones and sea spray. Blackcurrant, guava and passionfruit are captured alongside the subtlest hint of lemongrass. This wine is focused and explosive on both the nose and palate, yet remains elegantly balanced and distinctly salty.
