COLOUR: A delicate, pale green/gold
NOSE: A powerful and complex aromatic profile reflects the intrinsic quality of the fruit and diversity of vineyard source. Strong tropical, passionfruit and sweaty notes dominate the intense aromas.
PALATE: Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a fresh, rounded core packed with flavours of passionfruit along with fresh and dark herbs and subtle notes of thirst-quenching minerals, enlivened by gentle, mouthwatering acidity. This has good linearity and the wine carries to a lingering finish of passionfruit and tropical fruit.
VINEYARD REGION: 100% Marlborough
VINTAGE CONDITIONS: The 2018 Harvest was preceded by an ideal summer that ensured great vine health and fruit condition. 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 and third weeks of April with fruit in optimum condition.
WINEMAKING: 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 allowed the juice 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.
