VINTAGE SUMMARY
The 2016 growing season started out incredibly dry, with some predicting a severe drought. Fortunately some unseasonal rains in February set the vines up for a great final ripening period. March and April were very consistent, with warm and dry weather experienced throughout Marlborough allowing a harvest that wasn’t dictated by the weather. All varieties were able to be picked at optimal ripeness and in good time. Conditions over the flowering period were stable creating nice even crop levels in the vineyards which translated into wines with great concentration and texture. The Sauvignon Blanc from this vintage is showing the wonderful typicity that our Seaview Vineyard is known for – highly aromatic fruit flavours of blackcurrant leaf and citrus blossom with a vibrant palate that is pure with an elegant mineral finish.

WINEMAKING
Winemaker:Jeff Fyfe
Harvest Date:7th April - 20th April 2016
Winemaking Analysis: Alc 13% pH 3.23 TA 7.2 RS 3.7g/l

Parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from our Seaview Vineyard were selected to blend this wine. A splash of Merlot was added from one of our Hawke’s Bay vineyards to give the attractive pink hue. Individual parcels were harvested when the fruit was at optimal ripeness over a period of 13 days in early April. The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed 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 especially selected yeasts to enhance varietal aromatics and structure. Once blended, the wine was stabilised and gently filtered prior to bottling.
