The palate is concentrated and delightfully lively and displays excellent depth as well as an abundance of tasty flavours. A classic rendition offering great drinking

REGION: 100% Marlborough, River Terrace Vineyard in the Upper Wairau Valley

VINTAGE: The 2017 Vintage in the Upper Wairau was typified by warm daytime temperatures, tempered by cool nights.  An ideal summer ensured great vine health and fruit condition through to end of March.  These conditions were ideal for creating strong varietal flavours while retaining fine acidity and elegance in the wines.  Harvesting of fruit was carried out in the second week of April. The River Terrace Vineyard produces a distinct flavour profile. This is due to the nature of its soil which has an ideal mix of gravel and silt that encourages the vines to maximise the production of the hallmark thiols and esters of our Sauvignon Blanc

WINEMAKING: The Single Vineyard wines are only made when climatic conditions allow the full expression of the vineyard characters The fruit was harvested at maximum flavour as assessed through frequent tasting in the vineyard by our winemaker.  It was very gently pressed to avoid harsh phenolic extraction and the juice allowed to cold settle.  The clear juice was fermented at low temperatures using a range of yeast renowned for their ability to enhance the Sauvignon Blanc aromas. A balanced amount of residual sugar was left in the wine to complement the acidity and to add palate weight and structure
