100% Sauvignon Blanc from stony, carefully managed vineyard sites in the Wairau Valley (40%) and further south in the cooler Awatere Valley (60%).
Individual vineyard parcels were harvested and transported to the winery for immediate pressing to capture the freshness of the fruit. Fermentation was conducted at cool temperatures utilising selected yeast strains. At the completion of fermentation, the finished wines were left on lees and stirred to gain richness and complexity.
Intensely aromatic in a classic Marlborough style. True to its origins, its flavours are a medley of ripe tropical fruits with notes of citrus and fresh herbs. It is dry and medium-bodied with a crisp refreshing finish.
