TWR - "Te Whare Ra" - Sauvignon Blanc. The majority of fruit for this wine comes from the Awatere Valley sub-region of Marlborough. The growing conditions in this area are characterised by low fertility soils, cooler night-time temperatures and warmer days than in the Wairau Valley. This results in a longer ripening season which is all important for balanced wines with purity, ripe acidity and flavour concentration. The wines from this area tend to be more restrained in their youth but have great texture, structure and longevity which is why we choose to make an Awatere predominant blend.
The Sauvignon Blanc shows distinctive aromas of passionfruit, white currant, elderflower and citrus with a hint of gooseberry. These follow through to the palate - which is fine and soft with great purity, vibrant fruit and silky texture balanced by a ripe, juicy acidity and lingering minerality. Enjoy over the next 1-2 years.
