2020 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard & Winemaking
‘Single Vineyard’ Sauvignon Blanc harvested from the volcanic Greywacke stone soils of our ’Southern Valley’ vineyard in Marlborough, New Zealand. This vineyard consistently produces intensely flavoured grapes with good natural acidity.
Harvested in the cool of night, gently crushed and pressed, fermented with aromatic yeasts, wine was aged ‘sur lies’, with minimal filtration and stabilisation, hand labelled, with no compromise on quality.
Pale straw colour, with aromas of gooseberry, hawthorn and tropical fruits and hints of citrus. The palate is vibrant, dry, with a racy acid backbone, delicate and intense with distinctive minerality and flintiness, and a very long finish. We like this wine with fresh seafood, especially good with Japanese dishes.
