Region: Marlborough Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc (and 2% Pinot Gris) First Glance: Tropical Fruits, Balanced Elegance, Meadow Herbs, Mineral
The Wine: Sourced from three certified organic vineyards - primarily the Churton vineyards in Marlborough as well as Porters (Bellbird) and the Good Family vineyard in North Canterbury. 66% tank fermented, 15% fermented in concrete tulips, 17% fermented in old barrels and 2% skin fermented. Skin fermentation and partial malolactic fermentation are used to help naturally balance the acidity of Sauvignon Blanc while still showing the freshness and vibrancy the variety is known for.
Pale lemon hue. Aromas of fresh meadow flowers with grassy undertones with some ripe tropical fruits. Vibrant palate of gooseberry and passionfruit with savoury meadow herbs and a lovely dry saline finish.
