- Dry style
- Melon & guava
- Juicy acidity
Pale yellow in colour with beautifully defined aromas of nettles, tomato leaf and pert citrus notes held together over tropical aromas of melon and guava. Elegance, line and length are the hallmarks of this wine. Built around its juicy acid structure and a tell-tale textural minerality, it is a Sauvignon with persistence, succulence and harmony.
Planted in 2002, the Woolshed Vineyard consists predominantly of river terrace gravels with overlying silt and loam soils. It is situated in the Wairau Plains Southern Valleys.
The grapes were harvested in the cool of the night, then gently crushed and pressed. After cold settling, the juice was cool fermented in stainless steel with selected yeast strains to add complexity and retain the vibrant vineyard characteristics. Once fermentation was finished,the wine was racked and allowed to relax on light yeast lees before being bottled.
