Sourced from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough.

A cool summer delayed ripening much later than normal, which helped to retain acidity and allowed the aromatics to develop fully. The warm, stable autumn saved teh day allowed the fruit to be harvested in great condition.

GRAPE VARIETY

100% Sauvignon Blanc

MATURATION

Cleaned, settled juice fermented with a range of yeasts at cool temps, then racked off lees and kept chilled for 3 weeks before sulphuring and warming before blending.
