Vintage Summary

Marlborough experienced a classic cool climate growing season leading into the 2020 harvest. A mild winter merged gently into an early spring, followed by a cooler start to summer. Our Sauvignon Blanc lapped up the sunshine in the second half of the summer, which hit record
temperatures, resulting in superb ripening conditions. Our diverse range of vineyards spread across several microclimates, ensured that we harvested each parcel of fruit at their best expression, with some great intensity seen in all varietals.

Winemaker’s Note

A classic lively Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of nettle, capsicum, lime, grapefruit and honey-dew melon. The palate has good weight and drive with a lively acidity and flinty finish.

Vinification

Grapes harvested in the cool of the night were gently pressed and the juice clarified quickly to capture and maintain the powerful fruit aromas evident in this vibrant Sauvignon Blanc. Ferment was undertaken at cool temperatures over several weeks before blending and filtration.
