2012 Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaker's Notes:

Sauvignon Blanc is grown in our Marlborough vineyard on stony riverbed terraces, gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to give intense passionfruit and gooseberry fruit characters. The wine is fruit-driven in style, with complexity from lees ageing for several months in stainless steel tanks before bottling. This wine is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with intense flavours and crisp acid in a dry style.

Colour: Pale Straw

Bouquet: An intense amalgam of limes, grapefruit, and underlying rich tropical fruit

Palate: An inviting and fine texture brings out the citrus and currant flavours of the wine. Pure fruit and vibrant acidity leave a sustained, dry finish.
