About This Wine...
“worth checking out… bright green fruit aromas with gooseberry and nettles, fruit-driven and textured on the palate with classic Marlborough acidity shining through” Irish Examiner, June 2019
A vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with powerful aromatic notes of fresh passionfruit and ripe lime over a herbaceous background. The palate is textured and concentrated with exotic fruits and citrus flavours. Well integrated natural acidity leaves a crisp and lengthy finish.
This is a family owned single vineyard run by grandsons Clyde and Nigel of Walnut Block.
Renowned for its Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – coming later in the year. The vineyards are fully certified organic.
Located in Marlborough’s premium Rapaura sub-region, the soils provide ideal growing conditions for fruit-intense wines. With a stony, free-draining subsoil and younger alluvial silts layered above, Rapaura encourages a unique style, with generous ripe-fruit flavours and pungent aromas.
HARVEST & WINEMAKING
Harvested during the cool of night to maintain freshness and flavours. The grapes are de-stemmed and pressed, then slowly fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature using carefully selected yeast.
