From the Lismore and Waiora, Walnut Ridge, Hau Ariki Marae and Southdown Estate vineyards. Sites are all very similar, shallow silt loam over deep, free raining alluvial gravels, rainfall is very low. The naturally low yields, older vines, small canopies and judicious, labour intensive, hand picking of the entire crop, make an essential contribution to the uniquely Martinborough style of Sauvignon Blanc.Grapes are all hand picked, sorted and crushed, a portion is vinified in contact with skins and held for two months, drawing out more complex flavours, which works with the natural acidity to add a refreshing backbone. A third of the wine is fermented in neutral oak barrels for texture and richness.
Light straw colour. Notes of elderflower, lemon/ lime, tropical papaya and hints of fresh fennel are defining features. A full, creamy palate entry, lovely weight and a long and focused finish, a restraint and elegance that's all class. Aiming for a complex, satisfying, food friendly style, a small portion is fermented in older barrels to enhance mid palate weight and texture.
