Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) This vineyard is situated at lower Wairau to the east of the town of Blenheim on a site that originally grew apples of the ‘Snap’ variety. Soils are even, deep, fertile, free draining , silt loams, which provide vigour so essential for Sauvignon Blanc to produce intense powerful flavours. Slightly cooler, due to the closer proximity to the sea , than much of Marlborough, ripening is slightly slower, which helps retain intensity of flavour .
