Quick Overview

The fruit for this wine originates from the Awatere and Wairau valleys in Marlborough. Expert canopy management, including shoot thinning and leaf plucking, has ensured vine health, ideal vineyard flavours and clean, ripe fruit. The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to ensure it arrived at the winery in pristine condition.



Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc MARLBOROUGH

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT A pure expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, bursting with aromas of passionfruit, melon, nettles and fresh herbs. The palate is powerful and juicy, displaying vibrant grapefruit notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, and lively integrated acidity. Enjoy now and until 2017.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS Fresh pan fried fish or sautéed scallops with grilled seasonal vegetables.

VINEYARD & WINEMAKING The climate in Marlborough has high sunshine hours, but temperatures during the growing season are regulated by the cooling ocean influence. In 2014, all Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested between early March until mid April.

YEAST: Selected aromatic strains

FERMENTATION: Cool, slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks to retain distinctive regional and varietal characteristics

VINEYARD: The Awatere and Wairau valleys offer a variety of mesoclimates & different flavour profiles – essentially a 50% blend of the valleys, capturing the spectrum of Marlborough.

VARIETY: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
