K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Naturally low yields, older vines, small canopies and judicious, labour-intensive hand picking of the entire crop are all factors in producing this uniquely Martinborough style of Sauvignon Blanc. A small portion of de-stemmed, whole berries were loaded into a super-sized oak barrel where the juice fermented in contact with the berry skins, magically filling the entire barrel hall with intense, enticing aromatics. Adding further complexity and savoury notes, around 30% was fermented in neutral oak barrels. The on-skins component has highlighted beautiful citrus florals, with a hint of fresh fennel and lime zest, and has lent the wine an impressive textural quality with mouth-watering drive and a tight, flinty, satisfyingly long finish."

    A small amount of the grapes for this wine are fermented in large barrels on their skins and boy does it make a big difference! The texture of the wine is fantastic, It coats the palate while still having a lift from the balanced acid. There are flavors from fresh lemon zest, fresh white flowers, tropical fruit and fresh chives. The wine enjoys a long, dry finish where the acid really comes out. Absolutely delicious!
