Sauvignon Blanc
Vintage 2022 
Our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc leads with an inviting herbaceous aroma before bursting onto the palate with zesty grapefruit and rockmelon flavours. Fresh, bright and textural, enjoy this delicious wine while it is young.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes destined for this Cellar Selection wine were harvested in cool night temperatures to protect the aromatics. Clear juice is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks using selected aromatic yeast strains. The wine is left to mature on yeast lees for a short period of time to build palate weight and texture into the wine, without compromising freshness.
The Marlborough growing season started off well with very little frost pressure during spring. Flowering went without a glitch, due healthy soil moisture levels the canopies looked lush and vibrant. The start of 2022 summer was slightly colder; February was below the long-term average in temperature however the weather settled with a slightly damp autumn.
