This wine is pale lime in colour.
Aromas leap out of the glass in an explosion ofpassionfuit, fruit salad, white fleshed nectarines, orange blossom and notes of currant leaf & jalapeno peppers.
Made in quintessentially Marlborough style, this Sauvignon is loaded with tropical flavours of passionfruit, citrus & lovely herbaceous notes. It has a nice texture with a firm backbone of juicy acidity.
The fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc was grown in the Hawkesbury, Lower Wairau and Awatere Valley sub regions of Marlborough. Each parcel of fruit was chosen for its specifi c contribution to the aroma, fl avour and structure of the resultant blend. In order to encourage the fl avours of each individual vineyard parcel to come through in the fi nal blend I’ve kept the winemaking deliberately simple.
The grapes were harvested, pressed and cold settled over a period of 48 hours. After racking o juice lees, a long, cool fermentation with selected yeast strains took place.
Post fermentation, the components were blended, stabilised and bottled with a screwcap closure to retain freshness.
As with all my wines, this Sauvignon Blanc is best when consumed with great food & good friends!
