The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for this wine were sourced from Sound of White (35%), VB Premium at Fairhall (24%) and Murphy’s vineyard at the Spring Creek end of Rapaura Road (17%). The balance was sourced from Grovetown, Blind River, Central Wairau and Renwick. Approximately 5% of the wine has been fermented in oak to add texture.
In the glass, the wine offers a classical profile of citrus and tropical fruits, with a soft herbaceous note. The palate is generous and soft, showing grapefruit and guava with ripe acid, and a precise and cleansing finish with a touch of jalapeño. This flavor profile is quite typical of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
