  • Vintage Report

    • 2019 has produced a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. While the growing season started off cooler than normal, one of the hottest summer’s on record in Marlborough resulted in an early vintage and ripe fruit in pristine condition. The Sauvignon Blanc harvest was short and completed by the end of March, two weeks earlier than usual. The resulting wine is fruit-driven and concentrated, with strong aromatics.

  • Vinification

    • The grapes were gently pressed before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was conducted at low temperatures (12-14C) to retain the wines strong and appealing aromatics.

  • Tasting Notes

    • Intensely aromatic and lively with flavours of passionfruit and guava underpinned with aromas of fresh herbs and blackcurrant this is a great wine to enjoy as an aperitif, or match with seafoods. The palate is vibrant with zingy fruit that is balanced with a long, crisp mineral finish.
