Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"Our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is a blend from multiple vineyard sites throughout Marlborough, with a portion from the Awatere Valley and the balance from the Wairau Valley. Grapes were crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation was induced by the introduction of carefully selected yeast strains. We fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to preserve the lifted aromatics in this wine."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2022 (2022 Vintage)
"This is intensely aromatic on the nose showing crunchy apple, green rockmelon, feijoa and lime zest aromas, followed by a succulent palate offering fabulous fruit purity and lively mouthfeel. Classically expressed and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2025."
