Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc 2017

100% Sauvignon Blanc from Fiona Turner’s own Home Block vineyard, along with three select parcels of fruit from the Blind River, Dashwood, and Lower Wairau sub-regions of Marlborough.

Fruit was carefully pressed, ensuring minimal skin contact to prevent juice deterioration. Once settled the batches were cool fermented in stainless steel tanks using specific cultured yeasts to add complexity while retaining the fresh fruit characteristics from individual vineyards.

Winemaker's Comments

Intense aromas of blackcurrant, crushed lemongrass and thyme mingle with passionfruit and melon highlights. This is a complex and elegant style with classic characters of blackcurrant bud and fresh-cut thyme. Underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes from the grapes grown in the Blind River sub-region combine well with the more tropical notes of passionfruit and melon from the Wairau Valley vineyards. Stylish and pleasingly rich with vibrant aromatics and a fine balance of acidity, leading to a lingering finish.
