Made by one of Marlborough's most respected winemakers - Kevin Judd - this is a superior Sauvignon Blanc. Nectarines and yellow peaches, rock melon, grapefruit and a splash of passionfruit, mingled with ginger and lemongrass, jasmine flowers and cassis. A deliciously ripe and zesty Marlborough Sauvignon with a lemony, citrus thread that finishes crisp and dry.
Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes sourced across the Wairau and Awatere sub-regions. The fermentation takes place at low temperatures to preserve the more delicate varietal characteristics. A small proportion is left to ferment spontaneously in barrel, which adds a wonderful savoury element to the fresh floral, berry driven aromatics and flavour profile.
Aromatics are bright and intense with plenty of citrus, stone fruit, tomato leaf and white spice. On the palate, it is mouthfilling and creamy with citrus and stone fruit flavours dominating. The bright acidity gives great balance to the textural mouthfeel, and lifts the finish nicely, keeping those vibrant flavours going for a long time.
