Origin

This wine is predominantly from the Southern Valleys with smaller portions from our Awatere Valley vineyard and our coastal, Wairau Valley block.

Grape Variety

100% Sauvignon Blanc.

All the blocks were picked when considered to have maximum passionfruit characters and while the acidity was still bright and crisp. The grapes were gently pressed before the juice was fermented in stainless tanks with selected yeast or in old French barriques (10%). This wine is a blend of the tanks that we felt stood out for aromatic intensity and concentration on the palate, with the old oak portion.

Alcohol Percentage

12.5%

Cellar Potential

Stunning now but will continue to develop with time in the bottle for at least five years.
