Bankhouse Sauvignon Blanc
Vintage 2022 
Located on the western bank of the Waihopai River, Bankhouse is a close-planted vineyard with a myriad of soil types and aspects which provide diverse expressions from which to craft a wine. A dynamic wine with riper tropical flavours from the clay soils and emphasised minerality and freshness from the riverbed gravel soils.
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.

Lively and youthful, it has a good intensity of passionfruit and green capsicum flavours, crisp, dry and lingering.

Aromas of fresh apple and wet river pebbles, a fine layer of fresh herbs then white fleshed tropical fruits.
