WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

The fruit for this wine was sourced from carefully selected vineyards in Marlborough. These vineyards are on moderately fertile soil with a mix of stony, sandy loam and clay.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The growing season started with cool and unsettled weather during flowering which resulted in low crops. The cool weather continued into summer however little rain pressure allowed a longer stable growing season, almost one month longer than usual. This produced some intensely flavoured and concentrated aromatic wines.

GRAPE VARIETY

Sauvignon Blanc

MATURATION

Once harvested the grapes were transported to the winery and gently crushed and pressed. The grapes were kept cool and after cold and settling each batch was cool fermented in stainless steel using a variety of yeasts to add complexity. The wines were racked off the lees shortly after fermentation and carefully balanced and blended for bottling.
