2011 Mud House Single Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Neal Vineyard

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
This single vineyard wine sourced from the Neal's Swamp Road in the Dillions Point sub region is a perfect example of classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. After harvesting, the grapes were transported to the winery and crushed with minimal skin contact. After cold settling, each batch was cool fermented in stainless steel tanks using a variety of cultured yeasts to add complexity and to retain fresh fruit characteristics. The wines were blended shortly after the completion of fermentation, then carefully balanced and prepared for bottling.

WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

The Neal vineyard is situated on Swamp road in the heart of the Dillons Point sub region in Marlborough. The sub-region is known for its rich, deep soils producing Sauvignon Blancs of intense aromatics and concentration. The young vineyard has natural vigour which helps maintain a healthy canopy throughout the growing season.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

Marlborough was blessed with another exceptional year in 2011- especially for Sauvignon Blanc. Bud break was late September and was followed by a warm spring without frost. Adequate rainfall and warm temperatures meant the shoots grew quickly and flowering was earlier than normal. After January the season cooled which allowed for extended ripening period.

GRAPE VARIETY

100% Sauvignon Blanc

MATURATION

100% Stainless steel fermentation
