Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Refreshingly vibrant and juicy, the 2016 Sauvignon shows enticing aromas of citrus blossom and lemon grass with hints of jasmine and crisp, freshly-sliced fennel bulb. This latest offering is supple and bright and, at 12.5% alcohol, is wonderfully light on its feet. Around 5% of the fruit was fermented in contact with its skins and held for two months, drawing out the more complex flavours that reside in the skins. The grape skins also contain phenolics which, combined with the natural acidity, give the fresh back bone to this wine. Adding further interest, 30% of the juice was fermented in neutral oak barrels. Our naturally low yields, older vines, small canopies and judicious, labour-intensive hand picking of the entire crop are also factors in producing this uniquely Martinborough style of Sauvignon Blanc."
4 Stars & 17.5+/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Helen has worked very hard at making a style that is suited to her fruit and the district, giving a point of difference to the passionfruity thiol-monsters of the 2016 Marlborough vintage. Elegance, freshness of fruit, more methoxypyrazine gooseberry fruit, bright acidity and delicate textures were the aim, and for this, she’s used some skin contact and 30% in barrel. Very pale straw. The nose is tight and elegant with ripe yellow stonefruits and green stonefruits, and no tropical fruit. On palate crisp and steely with a slippery mouthfeel. Gooseberry fruit with subtle textures and detail. But the fruit and freshness prevail. It’s a more slender wine than some of the worked examples made elsewhere."
