Winemaker's Comment
"Capturing the essence of Marlborough, this Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of selective vineyards from both the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. Pungent herbal aromas lead into a juicy palate bursting with zesty grapefruit and rock-melon, with a round weighty finish. The quality of this year’s Marlborough wines looks exceptional despite the challenging lock-down circumstances."

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes destined for this Cellar Selection wine were harvested in cool night temperatures to protect the aromatics. Clear juice is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks using selected aromatic yeast strains. The wine is left to mature on yeast lees for a short period of time to build palate weight and texture into the wine, without compromising freshness.

Aromas of snow pea, kaffir lime and gooseberry. The wine is powerful and refined, displaying vibrant grapefruit and subtle passionfruit notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, and a balanced acidity.
