Description

Aroma // Grapefruit and lime zest, with sweet underlying passionfruit pulp.

Palate // Dry with a vibrant acid tension, there is a sweet fruit character showing the
classic Marlborough interplay of tropical fruits, citrus and zesty currant and
guava flavours.

Cellaring // Ripe flavours from a warm vintage, and a subtly firm structure give the potential
for moderate cellaring.

The initial sweet fruit character will diminish after several
years, but expect pleasant drinking to at least 2022.

Winemaking

Harvested predominantly in the cool of early morning, gentle juice extraction,
and pressing under inert gas. Cool settled and mainly fermented in stainless
steel tanks, around 6% of fermentation in oak barrels.

Vineyard

2018 was a very warm growing season, being dry through Spring and Summer,
and a change to wetter conditions in the Autumn harvest period. Our quickest
harvest ever had the Sauvignon Blanc rapidly picked from the vines between
periods of rain, with great flavours.
