Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

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.
