Description

Winemakers Notes

This vintage the wine is sourced from a single vineyard in the Dillons Point sub-region, just to the north and east of Blenheim. We had a fabulous growing season and the fruit was harvested in pristine condition on Thursday 14 April 2016. As always, the ferment was conducted in stainless using yeasts that we know to be capable of amplifying Sauvignon Blanc’s irresistible aromas and flavours. Wines with the ‘Dillons Point’ nickname always have an incredible depth of flavour, persistence and longevity.

Tasting Notes
Colour: As always, this wine is almost water white at bottling. As the wine ages, it will pick up pale green and gold tints.
Bouquet: Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at full throttle! There is masses of passionfruit and nectarine along with herbal nuances and a touch of sweat for complexity.
Palate: This wine is full bodied for a Sauvignon Blanc. It retains the typical racy acidity of the variety, but also has mid palate richness and loads of sweet fruit on the finish.

Cellaring
Best drunk while young and fresh. The wine will probably cellar very well but the flavours and aromas will change over time.
 
Food Matches
Young Sauvignon Blanc is a very refreshing aperitif. It is also a great accompaniment to seafood dishes, especially mussels, oysters and squid.

Independent Reviewer’s Comment
“The wine shows excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, displaying feijoa, passionfruit, lemongrass and red capsicum aromas on the nose, followed by a concentrated and focused palate that is lively and succulent. Superb fruit intensity and balance, making it highly enjoyable.” Sam Kim
