Greywacke Wild Sauvignon
Fruit was sourced from various vineyard sites in the Southern Valleys and the central Wairau Plains, specifically in Woodbourne, Renwick and Rapaura. Soil types vary from the young alluvial deposits of Rapaura and Renwick, which contain high proportions of greywacke river stones, to the older and denser clay-loams of the Southern Valleys. A high percentage of the vineyards were trained using the divided Scott Henry canopy management system, with the balance on two- or three-cane VSP (vertical shoot positioning).
An enticing combination of ripe summer fruit, fresh herbs and flowers. Candied citrus peel and honeysuckle, shortbread and brioche, tarragon and lemon thyme. A feast of sweet perfume intertwined with a delicate, smoky nuance. Fermented entirely with naturally occurring yeast, this is an alternative style of sauvignon blanc that is both intricate and textural, with a rich, generous palate that finishes with a flinty drynes.
