For the price, this is remarkably concentrated, with ample weight and intense flavors. It’s more subdued on the nose, offering just hints of stuck flint and grapefruit, but the citrusy flavors surge forward, culminating in a long, grapefruity finish.
The Wither Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows benchmark characteristics; intense gooseberry, tomato leaf and capsicum characters underpinned by the classically pungent melon, guava and passion fruit aromatics. The palate is extraordinarily balanced with bright seamless acidity, concentration of brambly, mineral lemongrass flavours and a long supple finish. A wine of remarkable intensity.
Each of our 11 vineyard sites strategically sited throughout the Wairau Valley were harvested at optimum flavour ripeness. The fruit from these vineyards was kept seperate throughout the wine making process to ensure integrity of the vineyard and to provide the greatest possible number of blending combinations. The fruit was gently pressed, cold settled, racked and cool fermented with selected yeast strains to enhance the unique aromatics & flavours. After fermentation the wines remained on light yeast lees to enhance palate feel and structure. The wines were then racked, blended, filtered, and bottled to retain & capture the remarkable freshness of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
