30% of this Sauvignon Blanc wine was sourced from Woolshed Vineyard in the upper Wairau Valley with the remainder from growers in the Wairau, Ure and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough, New Zealand.
According to the UK importer, “the After harvesting, the grapes were transported to the winery and crushed with minimal skin contact to avoid juice deterioration. After cold settling, each batch was cool fermented in stainless steel using a variety of cultured yeasts to add complexity to the blend and to retain fresh fruit characteristics. The wines were blended shortly after the completion of fermentation, then carefully balanced and prepared for bottling.”
