VINTAGE SUMMARY
Vineyard: The growing season in Marlborough started out warm and dry, resulting in very even flowering and ultimately balanced vines with the right amount of crop to get them through to harvest. The warm weather continued through Spring and Summer, with periodic rains which kept the vines hydrated through the warm growing season. The warmer conditions meant that harvest started around two weeks earlier than the previous year and the fruit harvested was full of flavour, with naturally balanced acidity and lovely weight. The resulting wine is showing the wonderful hallmarks that our Awatere and Wairau vineyards are known for – highly aromatic fruit flavours of passionfruit and fresh herbs, with underlying purity and minerality.

WINEMAKING
Winemaker: Natalie Christensen
Harvest Date: 22nd March - 9th April 2018
Winemaking Analysis: Alc 12.5% pH 3.32 TA 7.2 RS 3.8g/l
Carefully selected parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from our Seaview and Wairau Valley Vineyards were used to craft this wine. The fruit was harvested over a period of eighteen days. At the winery, the fruit was destemmed and gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 72 hours, after which the clear juice was racked off, followed by a long cool fermentation in stainless steel to capture and enhance the fruit flavours. Each of the individual parcels were fermented separately using a range of selected yeasts to enhance varietal characters. The wine was then blended, stabilised and filtered in preparation for bottling.

Product Reviews

Regional Trophy 24 June 2014
DECANTER WORLD WINE AWARDS
"Vibrant, lifted, mineral style with lovely purity and a mix of tropical and aromatic fruit. Hints of fig, passion fruit, elderberry and flint give lots of interest, and the palate is pungent, crisp, grassy and long. A benchmark Kiwi Sauvignon."

Jamie Goode 23 March 2015
SUNDAY EXPRESS UK
"An attractive Kiwi Sauvignon from the increasingly impressive Yealands Estate, this is highly aromatic with flavours of green pepper, elderflower and passionfruit. It’s pure, pretty, crisp and delicious."

Victoria Moore 9 May 2015
DAILY TELEGRAPH
"A bright and very inviting Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes come from two Marlborough sub-zones. Those from the Awatere Valley contribute verdancy: flavours of crunchy green capsicums, freshly podded peas and green tomatoes. Those from the warmer Wairau offer more star fruit, passion fruit and a tinge of blackcurrant leaf. Bold and refreshing. "
