100% Sauvignon Blanc from a single vineyard called the Swamp Block, on the fertile, free-draining soils of the lower Wairau Valley in Marlborough.
The juice was pressed off immediately to minimize skin contact and deterioration following harvesting. After settling, it was fermented using a carefully selected yeast in a stainless steel tank at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. This batch was selected as a Pioneer Block wine due to its intensity of flavour and rich texture.
Heady aromas of passion fruit and blackcurrant leaf with a hint of struck match flint. The palate is flavourful and rich with sweet navel orange, white currant and passion fruit.
