Unlabelled Sauvignon Blanc by one of Marlborough's most reputable estates. In a unique and distinctively recognizable growing region such as Marlborough, the most critical work to produce beautiful wine must be done in the vineyard. There is no substitute for well balanced fruit and the maker here has clearly spent time amongst the vines applying the most exacting standards of viticulture right up until harvest. Portions were treated to a luxurious fermentation in oak barriques and puncheons, which contributes a supple undertone of smoky savouriness.
Summer in Marlborough started early and finished just before harvest, providing ideal growing conditions from flowering right through to the ripening of fruit. This achieved a wide variety of flavour profiles in the individual parcels, affording the winemaker a fortuitous opportunity to construct an engaging and complex Sauvignon Blanc. Numerous batches were fermented cold to preserve freshness and assembled to realize a well balanced, intense and textural wine. A number of portions were aged on lees and stirred to add richness and weight, others were racked early and filtered to accentuate the clean citrus. Treated to a small portion of barrel fermentation in a selection of new French oak barriques. Alcohol 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw colour. Rich tropical fruit aromas with a hint of white peach and pink grapefruit. Luscious palate with summer flavours of tropical fruits, white peach and grapefruit filling the palate with a lovely intensity. Exhibits layers of flavour ranging from the distinctive grass characters of Marlborough, right through to citrus, lemons and lime to tropical and grass at the other end of the spectrum. A wine of good acid balance, and great length, the palate is textural and complex, with a pleasant, finely textured mouthfeel, finishing long, revitalising and clean. A vivacious Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc to accompany summer seafood salad, the freshest grilled fishes, newly shucked oysters and scallops.
