“We do things unconventionally; take risks, start things,
welcome different. Screw caps keep wine fresher than corks. So we started
championing them. We decided the world needed a clean, top quality, fruit
driven Chardonnay devoid of the heavy oak. So we started making one.”
Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is widely regarded as
setting a global standard for this variety. A combination of dry and moderate
climates gives near perfect cool climate growing conditions and assists with
the intense varietal characters unique to Marlborough.
Deriving from the French word sauvage ("wild") and
blanc (“white”) ours is a crisp and powerful, well balanced wine with intense
aromas of gooseberry, passion fruit and citrus flavors. This light to medium
bodied aromatic wine is a great match with salads, seafood and vegetarian
dishes and perfectly acceptable to be enjoyed on its own!
Grapes from all over the Marlborough Region are used in this
blend where vineyards are selected by flavor profile for desired outcome. We
tend towards the more herbaceous end of the flavor profile, ensuring Marlborough's
typicity is retained.
Fruit is night harvested, when the temperatures are cool to minimize
oxidation, making it easier to manage in the winery. After that, we tinker as
little as possible, letting the vine and the flavor speak, gently guiding it
through the course of the winemaking process.
Style wise, we are looking for upfront herbaceous aromas,
backed by ripe fruit flavors of melon, passionfruit and crisp acidity.
The color is pale green with an aroma bouquet of citrus and
tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that Marlborough
Sauvignon Blanc is famous for. An exuberant wine brimming with flavors of
pineapple and stonefruit with a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh and
zesty. You may cellar this wine it will continue to develop over time.
Fragrant and tropical, displaying pineapple, grapefruit,
dragon fruit and melon flavors. There's a juicy acidity, with great persistence
on the finish. Drink now.
