Sauvignon Blanc Reserve

We celebrate an entirely new generation of this wine at our estate, planted in sites prepared specifically for its three clonal varieties, selected in New Zealand for their adaptability to our warm growing conditions. Fermentation and aging in stainless steel, with extended contact with the lees, capture the vibrant aromas and refreshing palate of Sauvignon Blanc with firm body and lively food friendliness.

A single, light frost at the outset of the season inflicted minor crop losses, but thereafter a pattern stabilized as one of moderate rain, and daytime temperatures never approaching hot ranges. In the crucial last 6 weeks of the growing season, from early September to mid-October, we enjoyed a period of consistent high pressure, with clear blue sky, warm days and cool evenings. The whites bear a refreshing profile, their higher than average acidity a gift of the cooler season, in turn yielding extravagantly fragrant aromatics.
