2016 Wairau River Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

2016 Wairau River Reserve Sauvignon Blanc



This wine continues to amaze us with its mix of power and elegance. Upfront nettles, a touch of minerality combine with blackcurrants and passion fruit notes with a subtle salt character on the palate. The finish is long and tireless.



These grapes were sourced from our Longbend Vineyard situated in the Dillon’s Point area of Marlborough. These soils are typically high in saline and give the finished wine a very unique character. The vineyard is distinctive in that it runs East West, producing contrasting flavour profiles. The grapes were harvested in the cool hours of the morning and left on skins for six hours before gentle pressing. The juice was fermented with cultured yeast in stainless steel vats at low temperatures, following fermentation the wine was left on light lees for two months before being finished for bottle.
