Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc 2016


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

Complex and elegant with classic Marlborough characters of blackcurrant bud and freshly cut thyme. Underlying ripe fruit and mineral notes from the Blind River vineyard portion combines 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.
