Producer Note
Great things come from small beginnings. In 1978 Neal and Judy Ibbotson were
inspired to plant their own small plot of land in in the breathtaking vineyards of
Marlborough. Their experience and expertise, combined with an abundance of
passion, has led to the creation of some of New Zealand’s best vineyard sites. As
pioneers of Marlborough viticulture, they are now joined at the family winery by their
three children and are producing world class wines. Senior winemaker Hamish Clark
has been a key member of the winemaking team since 2001. He has been awarded
‘Winestate Winemaker of the Year’ in 2017, 2014, 2011 and 2010, and is highly
respected in the world of wine.


Vineyard
The fruit is sourced from a selection of vineyards located predominantly in the lower
Wairau subregion. This region is renowned for producing Sauvignon Blanc wines with
a heightened expression of flavour. These vineyards are 100% sustainable and the
vines are trained using the Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) method. This is the most
common training system in the Marlborough region, as it helps to facilitate practices
such as leaf removal, shoot removal and cluster thinning. The vines are irrigated
during the spring and summer months to avoid stress and are carefully monitored to
ensure the balance between water stress and vine development is kept at optimal
levels. Each vineyard block is harvested at optimum flavour maturity and
physiological ripeness.


Winemaking
The grapes were transported to the winery quickly and immediately pressed in order
to minimise skin contact. After cold settling, the juice from each batch was
fermented at cool temperatures, in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains.
Each batch was assessed for quality and only the best components were selected
for this premium blend. The wine was made in an unoaked style to preserve the
purity of fruit and expressive aromatics.


Tasting Note
Lifted aromas of passionfruit, melon and blackcurrant combine with subtle mineral
notes. The rich and full palate, is exquisitely balanced with vibrant notes of
passionfruit, grapefruit and guava leading to a long mineral finish.
