It is fresh, zesty, juicy and full. This fruit-driven new world style wine is what we all come to love and expect of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It is the reason why one of our winemakers – Bruce Abbott joined the industry.
“A pure taste of NZ summer in a glass”, would be his way of describing it.
Vintage 2022 was a very “new” normal growing and harvesting season for a lot of Marlborough vineyards. Having secured a team of talented cellar hands, the first fruit was met with a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement. A good flowering period, steady and at times very heavy rainfall throughout the season had us employ every bit of viticulture knowledge and finesse. It was crucial to be on top of our vineyard management programme.
Fortunately, we had the ability to call on years of collective experience of growing grapes and making wine across the country. Intricate terroir knowledge and almost daily fruit assessment kept our grapes growing to their full potential.
You can expect every bit of aroma and flavour you have grown to know and love Marlborough for.
