K&L Notes

Proudly presented by Andrew as the antithesis of the “typical” Marlborough style Sauv Blanc. This Sauv Blanc comes from a particularly stony, rocky section of the estate vineyard that is farmed specifically to make this wine. Without boring you with the technical detail everything about this wine focused on turning down the volume of the intensely aromatic, fruity, exuberant aspects of NZ savvy and putting the focus on texture, minerality and lees derived complexity. Lots of people attempt this style; very few succeed in creating wines as enthralling as this. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L NZ Wine Buyer)

    This is a killy Savvy from one of New Zealand's most exciting producers. The fruit is coming off a malnourished, stony part of the vineyard, which may not sound like ideal conditions, but actually forces the vines the concentrate all their energy into the flavor of the grapes, because they struggle in that environment. The Sauv Blanc is light and bright with great concentrated fruit and no vegetal character thanks to a lot of leafing in the vineyard. Andrew Hedley is a minimalistic winemaker utilizing wild yeast fermentation, neutral barrels and extended lees contact to give depth and body to the wine. Finally, a different expression of the most popular NZ varietal and definitely something to put on your tasting list.
