So skillful and dedicated are the winemaking team at Yealands Estate, they have earned International Wine Challenge award for world's best Sauvignon Blanc. It is from their zero carbon certified wineworks in Wairau Valley, that the viticulturalists can source fruit for the construct of generously proportioned yet balanced wines which are in complete harmony with the environment. Whale's Tale is a crisp, fruit forward representation of Marlborough, perfect alongside fine cheese or freshly tossed chicken caesar.
Harvests of Sauvignon Blanc are collated from good vineyards throughout the finer winegrowing precincts of Marlborough. The fast draining, low fertility soils, warm days and chilly nights form a mesoclime that's unmatched anywhere else in the world for yielding lusciously fruit driven Sauvignon Blanc wines. Grapes are crushed and gently pressed before cold settling. The clear juices are racked off and inoculated to choice yeasts. A long cool vinification in controlled fermenters captures and retains the vibrancy of Marlborough fruit. Batches are treated to a term on lees before assembling into the finished wine, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
TASTING NOTES
Light straw hue. Lifted nose of passionfruit and lychee flower, kiwis and kaffir lime. A lifted blackcurrant palate, complexed by notes of wet stone and thyme, elegant yet full with sufficient weight and texture to mate alongside white meat roasts, all balanced by flinty minerality. A splendid match to goat’s cheese flan and the freshest seafood.

About the Yealands Estate Winery
The Yealands Estate wineworks were created to operate sustainably at every level. Opened August 2008, the winery was built under the draft Green Building Code, the first in the world to be accredited CarboNZeroCERTâ„¢ from inception. Functionally it opera
Aesthetically, the building is designed to blend into the landscape with no disruptive contours. Rainfall from the roof of the winery is collected in swale drains on either side of the building, and either recycled or piped out to our wetlands. Throughout the building, motion sensors control lighting and air conditioning, ensuring neither is left on needlessly. Extensive insulation and heat recovery technologies reduce heat loss and recycle energy for re-use. Probes inside and outside the building maintain constant temperatures while solar panels, wind turbines and the burning of vine prunings generate supplementary power. The goal is to become self-sufficient in energy, supplying surplus power back to the national grid. Yealands Estate»
