Winemaking

After harvest, the grapes were crushed and direct pressed with minimal skin contact. The clarified juice was then cool fermented to optimize varietal expression, flavor, and intensity. There was no wood and minimal skin contact. We used five different yeasts to ensure that we profiled the fruit and kept the fresh acidity.

wine region

Marlborough

The first vines were planted in Marlborough in 1973, and today it’s one of the world’s foremost winegrowing regions. Marlborough’s long ripening period results in cool-climate flavors that vary significantly by sub-region. This region is made up of seven distinct sub-regions, and the differences among them hold the key to blending intense and complex Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. This wide array of flavors offers winemakers the ability to blend to particular style year after year.
