Award Winning 2015 Waipara Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

2015 Waipara Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
The rule book was thrown away when it came to creating the 2015 Waipara Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
 
According to Winemaker Simon McGeorge, this year was one for exploring new places and corners of Marlborough, maximising the exceptional promise and potential a range of alternative vineyard blocks showed.
 
The growing season was a cooler one, but not wet, resulting in differentiation between the sub-regions, hence a departure from their classic style of tropical notes from upper Wairau and elegant and ripe greens from Awatere valley.
