Produced from fruit grown in Omaku, Wairau and Awatere Valleys, harvested in the early morning to preserve their flavour, then destemmed, crushed and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact. Fermentation was at low temperatures in stainless steel with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent fruit flavours.
The 2015 vintage benefited from an excellent growing and harvesting season, to produce a ‘top’ wine displaying a sparkling pale straw green colour and an excellent full palate. The warm days and cool nights of Marlborough have produced the region's typical Sauvignon Blanc.
