Wairau River Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

We use some of the oldest vines on our estate (planted in 1983) to make up the blend in this wine, which gives us fruit with very good intensity and weight. Located on the northern side of the Wairau Valley, the flavours produced from this vineyard are in the tropical spectrum with notes of pink grapefruit, passionfruit and gooseberry. Planting on the alluvial soil of old riverbeds gives the wine a fine mineral acidity. This Sauvignon Blanc is produced in a dry style, with around 2 -3 grams of residual sugar and a tightly wound pH to give a longer cellaring life of 2-3 years from bottling.
