Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born. This is an aesthetic range of meticulously crafted, limited vintages, fashioned for the aficianado of bespoke, small batch, little vineyard wines... The lobethal libations of leabrook»

Drift Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Awatere New Zealand
The Awatere Valley sub region of Marlborough offers a unique mesoclime, shaped by the strong coastal winds, low rainfall, intense sunshine and cool nights. Vines enduring these conditions yield vibrant, intensely flavoured grapes which can make vigorously fruit driven Sauvignon Blanc wines with a palpable mineral character. Distinctively Awatere Valley, a range of characters on the nose and palate transpire from the synergy between parcels of fruit, hand selected off choice sites.

All in all, over seventy individual parcels of grapes are harvested, predominately from five choice blocks grown to select vineyards in Awatere Valley. Parcels are individually handled, treated to a long cool temperature controlled vinification in fermenters, ensuring optimal fruit characteristics are captured and maintained. Upon completion, batches are racked off fine lees and settled. After a lengthy session to determine the final assemblage, components are stabilised and filtered for bottling.
Bright light straw hue. Crushed thyme aromas with hints of wet stone on the bouquet, complimented by mineral and distinctive regional tropical expressions, guava and passionfruit. These aromas follow on to the palate, intense with flavours of passionfruit and lively citrus. A long and memorable, crisp and elegant finish completes the well balanced, finely textured palate.
