This Wairau Sauvignon Blanc comes from mature vines in the stony soils around the Renwick township in Marlborough, blended with biodynamically grown hillside fruit from the Churton Vineyard. Fermented at cooler temperatures with cultured yeasts in stainless steel, with small portions fermented in oak fuders, the wine is left on light lees for 6 months to provide texture before bottling.
Wonderful aromatics of lime, passionfruit and a warm summer meadow. Lovely delicious palate brimming with gooseberry, fresh lime, and hints of ripe nectarine, finishing with a lovely long feel of the stony soils and refreshing salty acidity.
Ripe, concentrated sauvignon blanc from a very favourable vintage. An aromatic wine with impressive purity and citrus, lime, tropical fruit, red capsicum and gooseberry flavours. Deliciously mouth-watering acidity adds tension and drives a lengthy finish. 95 points.
