Wither Hills Marl/Sav/Blanc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Wither Hills was founded in the 1990s, and quickly built up a fantastic reputation, based on its production of just three wines: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The estate has grown in size and stature and is now regarded as one of the finest Marlborough estates. Chief Winemaker Ben Glover oversees a top team of dedicated wine fanatics. The Wither Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows benchmark characteristics; intense gooseberry, tomato leaf and capsicum characters underpinned by the classically pungent melon, guava and passionfruit aromatics. The palate is extraordinarily balanced with bright seamless acidity, concentration of brambly, mineral lemongrass flavours and a long supple finish. A wine of remarkable intensity.

The Sauvignon Blanc fruit is sourced from selected vineyards strategically sited throughout the Wairau Valley, encompassing the total spectrum of what Sauvignon Blanc has to offer. This in turn gives our winemakers the greatest possible array of aromas and flavours to meld into stunning seamless Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
