Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon

Marlborough

2008

Notes from the Producer

On the 2009 vintage:

VINIFICATION

These grapes were selected from a number of vineyards throughout the Marlborough region.
Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend.
The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve
flavours. Each block was kept separate throughout the various stages of the winemaking
process. Fermentations were carried out at cool temperatures and when all tanks had
completed ferment they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled.
All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavours, power and complexity of this
stunning wine.

COLOUR

Pale green.

NOSE

A bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is famous for.

PALATE

An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple and stonefruit with a hint of
herbaceousness. The finish is fresh and zesty.

CELLARING

This wine will continue to develop over time.

FOOD MATCH

Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to fresh oysters, asparagus dishes or
summer salads.
