Bursting with melon and fresh peach aromas, this vibrant and crisp wine has a lingering sparkle in the mouth. The small delicate bubbles of this frizzante style wine enhance zingy fruit flavours capturing the essence of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
Fruit for this wine was sourced from a selection of vineyards throughout New Zealand spanning a range of different climates and soil types. The climate in New Zealand has high sunshine hours but temperatures during the growing season are regulated by the cooling ocean influence.
Fruit set in the cool spring weather was lower than usual, resulting in the development of open bunches with small flavourful berries. From January onwards, Marlborough experienced a summer of the century, with a spell of long hot dry weather with moderately cool nights providing the perfect environment to ensure physiological and flavour ripeness whilst retaining freshness.
Cool, slow fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks to retain distinctive regional and varietal characteristics, as well as to ensure maximum retention of delicate fl flavours and aromatics. Soon after fermentation was completed the wine was bottled to capture its vibrancy and freshness.
