Production note

Another magic ripening season with the main difference to recent years being the amount of rainfall in spring which really saw Marlborough have some of the best looking canopies and healthy vines come harvest have seen since 2003. This allowed the vine to work at its own speed and when we had the predicted ‘warmer than usual’ summer, the vines thrived and the fruit settled in for a great run into harvest. These slightly warmer nights and days have allowed the Sauvignon Blanc to show some more fleshiness and riper acidity hence are showing better earlier than in the last two vintages – although this will not hamper longevity – another great Sauvignon vintage to behold and savour!
