Gem Marlborough Sauv Blanc 2009
“Passion fruit and gooseberry surrounded by guava and lemon flavours that run smoothly through the palate hemmed by a subtle mineral tone and soft acid.”
Grown in the Rapaura district of the Wairau Valley the grapes for this wine were harvested in outstanding condition, then pressed and fermented completely dry. After approximately 12 months on lees an ideal palate balance was achieved. The wine was then bottled and left to condition until its release. This sauvignon blanc will develop well for the next 6-8 years prior to the onset of more complex characters.
