Wine Description

The 2007 Marama has its own identity; richly textured it exhibits aromas of black currant and elderflower with a hint of burnt caramel. The palate is complex with flavours of melon, tamarillo and a hint of freshly roasted coffee bean. A tight and focused acidity creates a long, lingering finish. This wine should develop well over the next eight years.

Winemaker's Notes

The fruit was hand-sorted then whole-bunch pressed, before being transferred directly to French Burgundian barriques, twenty five percent of which were new. The juice and solids were left to undergo spontaneous fermentation using wild yeast, followed by partial natural malolactic fermentation. The wine was then left in barrel on yeast lees for fifteen months, with regular stirring.

Expert Reviews
  • Wine & Spirits
    Pale, green-tinged yellow. Captivating aromas of lemon, lime and crushed stone, lifted by violet and jasmine. Densely packed but vibrant and high-pitched, with superb intensity and lift to the floral and mineral flavors. Finishes long and gripping, with an impression of weightlessness. This makes the overwhelming majority of Marlborough sauvignons seem strictly commercial by comparison. A lot of wine for the price.
