Monowai Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Green-gold colour, this vibrant wine has aromas of gooseberry and passionfruit complimented by white peach and lime flavours Aging sur lie adds palate weight and a balanced acidity gives the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc length and freshness.

Monowai Estates 22 ha vineyard is located on the northern banks of the Ngaruroro River in Hawke's Bay's Crownthorpe district. The soil type is free draining red gravel with a thin top layer of silt loam. Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are planted, which are ideally suited to these soils and climate. The grapevines are trained to increase fruit intensity and consistency. Hand thinning ensures low yields and leaf plucking maximizes sunlight and air movement through the vines. The Monowai winery was commissioned in 2005. It has been designed with premium production in mind. Emma drew on her extensive experience of working in many wineries around the world to design the ideal winery for Monowai's requirements. This includes four separate temperature controlled barrel rooms and temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to control fermentation, maximising varietal characteristics. The winery design allows for minimum labour input to ensure Emma has total control over the entire winemaking process. Read less
