Vineyard
Meticulous effort from our viticulture team ensured our
Nelson vineyards delivered clean, concentrated, and
balanced fruit jam packed with classic Sauvignon Blanc
flavours.
Winemaking
The fruit was gently crushed and pressed and the clear juice
was run off for a cool ferment with yeast chosen to highlight
the punchy aromatics of this variety. After a short period
ageing on lees, the wine was blended and bottled.
Vintages
The 2019 harvest was one of the finest on record. Spring was
cool and wet and the weather over key flowering periods
seemed unkind at the time. Crops were eventually down as
much as 25%, but this alone does not explain the quality of
the fruit at harvest. Summer was fine and warm with
intermittent rain keeping a drought prone province green, the vines seemingly never under any
stress. Veraison though had proceeded quickly over a fine spell of weather which would give
consistency to the ripeness of berries. Harvest arrived slightly early but no records were broken
here. In fact it seemed very much a normal harvest until we approached our first pick. The berries
though had developed abnormally thick skins blessed with an abundance of colour and flavour.
This coupled with a spell of fine weather over harvest period, allowed us to pick when full
ripeness had been achieved. Both whites and reds have excelled.
