Vintage ConditionsThe 2011 vintage was extremely variable throughout the Marlborough region. High rainfall from November to January it saw one of the wettest starts to the season, coupled with warmer than average nights this accelerated ripening. The dominant La Nina phase with its combination of high rainfall and low wind resulted in good vine health. However the intermittent rainfall and the possibility of frosts kept everyone on their toes throughout harvest which resulted in picking dates being very carefully selected to optimise fruit flavour and quality.
Grape VarietalSauvignon Blanc
Vinification and MaturationFruit was selected from unique vineyard sites throughout the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough. The Awatere Valley vineyards provide steely, racy acidity, while the Wairau Valley vineyards provide powerful and intense fruit with lifted passionfruit. The upper Wairau Valley vineyards around the Delta area display ripe and refined melon-citrus flavours. Fruit for this wine was harvested at various levels of ripeness to ensure a mixture of blending options. Once crushed and pressed, the juice was naturally cold settled for several days before being racked for fermentation. A slow, cool fermentation savoured the aromatics and freshness before the wine underwent a final blending for bottling.
